Sydney Writers' Festival: David Ireland - The Lost Legend of Australian Literature

Conversation with David Ireland as part of the Sydney Writers' Festival.

David Ireland has won the Miles Franklin Award three times, but has not published a novel in almost 20 years. That long silence has ended with the re-publication of his backlist and the arrival of a new fiction, published in parts by Island magazine and now complete in a limited edition. David joins chief literary critic of The Australian Geordie Williamson in a one-off event to discuss David’s brilliant career, tumultuous life, and late return to the public imagination. A rare opportunity to hear from a living legend of Australian literature.
