Author talk: Holden Sheppard at Perth Festival (WA)

In their work, Christos Tsiolkas (The In-Between), Holden Sheppard (The Brink), A.J. Betts (One Song) and Madison Godfrey (Dress Rehearsals) transcend and recalibrate traditional notions of beauty. With Gillian O'Shaughnessy they explore what makes their heart take flight and the hows and whys of love, awe and imperfection.
