Authors Up The Cross - Only The Animals

Ceridwen Dovey in conversation with Geordie Williamson

Wednesday 10 September 6.30pm, Kings Cross Library, 1/50-52 Darlinghurst Road, Kings Cross

FREE EVENT but bookings essential.  Book via Eventbrite or call 9246 4530.

Join Geordie Williamson, chief literary critic of The Australian, when he talks to Ceridwen Dovey about her new book Only The Animals.

Ceridwen Dovey is a former anthropologist and the author of a novel, Blood Kin.  Her new collection of stories gives us an animal's eye view of humans at their brutal, violent worst and their creative, imaginative best.  Each story is told through the soul of an animal caught up in a human conflict and whose existence is entwined with a famous writer.

This promises to be a compelling exploration of the power of fiction with one of Australia's leading critics and an exciting new voice in Australian Fiction.
