Literary Lunch with Kate Grenville in Sydney

One of Australia’s finest writers Kate Grenville pays tribute to an amazing woman, her mother, in One Life, the story of a woman whose life spanned a century of tumult and change. In many ways Nance’s story echoes that of many women, for whom the spectacular shifts of the twentieth century offered a path to new freedoms and choices. In other ways Nance was exceptional. In an era when women were expected to have no ambitions beyond the domestic, she ran successful businesses as a registered pharmacist, laid the bricks for the family home, and discovered her husband’s secret life as a revolutionary.

Kate Grenville’s 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 Thornhill, The LieutenantLilian’s StoryDark Places and Joan Makes History.
