AUSTRALIAN NOIR – DARK STORY MEETS MORALITY TALE?
June 17, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm$15
Willy Lit Festival
Meet three authors who take undeniably Australian characters on a moral journey where not everyone ends up the better for it. Join Janice Simpson, Fiona Capp and Jock Serong as they explore strong writing that bends genre – not crime fiction or literature as we’ve known it.
Janice Simpson – Murder in Mt Martha – “Murder in Mt Martha is a page-turner, as well as a psychological exploration of what makes a murderer. Janice’s readers are gripped by the way the story unfolds in two eras, providing insight into how lives were lived more than half a century ago, as well as in modern-day Australia.” – The Peninsula Star.
Jock Serong – The Rules of Backyard Cricket – ‘The Rules of Backyard Cricket by Jock Serong, while classified as ‘crime’, is a compelling literary novel dissecting toxic sporting culture and its fallout.’ Paddy O’Reilly, Australian Book Review, 2016 Books of the Year
Fiona Capp – To Know My Crime – A nail-biting and compelling story of risk, blackmail and the corrosive nature of guilt – and how we all have to live with the consequences of our actions.
‘Utterly compelling’ The Australian
