Dymocks Adelaide presents Kate Grenville in conversation with The University of Adelaide's Dr. Stephanie Hester.
Kate Grenville's mother, Nance was exceptional. In a time when women were not expected to have dreams or aspirations beyond the kitchen, she ran successful businesses as a registered pharmacist, she laid bricks for the family home and discovered her husband's secret life as a revolutionary. Taken from her mother's fragmented memoirs, One Life: My Mother's Story is a touching, deeply moving homage from one of the nation's finest authors.
One of Australia’s best-loved and admired authors, Kate Grenville has published eight novels. Her international bestseller The Secret River, received the Commonwealth Prize for Literature and the Christina Stead 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 Thornhill, The Lieutenant, Lilian’s Story, Dark Places and Joan Makes History.
