A First Place: David Malouf at 80 - In Conversation with Nicholas Jose
A reciprocal event between the Friends of the University Library and the J.M. Coetzee Centre for Creative Practice, celebrating two new publications by David Malouf: Earth Hour and A First Place.
'Topography, geography, history. Multiculturalism, referendums, the constitution and national occasions. Parental and grandparental romances, the sensual and bountiful beauty of Brisbane, the mysterious offerings of Queenslander houses, and leaving home. The idea of a nation and the heart of its people. Being Australian and Australia's relationship to the world. Putting ourselves on the map.'
'At the heart of these pieces is the idea of home, where and what it is. What they illustrate is the formation of a man, an Australian and one of the best writers this country has produced.' (Random House)
All these subjects, and more, are explored from the generous, questioning and original perspective of David Malouf.
