Come to the Mosman’s Barry O’Keefe Library for an evening listening to one of Australia's most important postwar writers, Elizabeth Harrower. A light supper will be provided and her latest book—A Few Days in the Country: And Other Stories—can be purchased on the night.
Elizabeth Harrower is admired by many of her contemporaries and internationally acclaimed for her five brilliant novels—Down in the City, The Long Prospect, The Catherine Wheel and The Watch Tower (all of which have been republished as Text Classics) and In Certain Circles, which was published in 2014.
A Few Days in the Country is essential reading for Harrower fans. These finely turned stories range from caustic satires to gentler explorations of friendship. It brings together for the first time her stories published in Australian journals in the 1960s and 1970s, along with those from her archives—including ‘Alice’, published for the first time earlier this year in the New Yorker. These finely turned pieces show a broader range than the novels, ranging from caustic satires to gentler explorations of friendship.
