A carefully researched investigation into the science of scent and the fragrance industry, The Case Against Fragrance will make you see—and smell—the world differently.

Her bestselling novel The Secret River received the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize, and was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize and the Miles Franklin Literary Award. The Idea of Perfection won the Orange Prize. Grenville’s other novels include Sarah ThornhillThe LieutenantLilian’s StoryDark Places and Joan Makes History. Kate lives in Sydney and her most works are the non-fiction books One Life: My Mother’s Story and The Case Against Fragrance.

It would be greatly appreciated if people could refrain from wearing perfume to this event.
