Perth Concert Hall is delighted to partner with FANE to present a special online event: 

Perth Concert Hall is delighted to present In Conversation with RichardFlanagan on the launch of The Living Sea of Waking Dreams with Jennifer Byrne. The Living Sea of Waking Dreams is an ember storm of a novel. This is Booker Prize-winning novelist Richard Flanagan at his most moving—and astonishing—best.

In a world of perennial fire and growing extinctions, Anna’s aged mother is dying—if her three children would just allow it. Condemned by their pity to living she increasingly escapes through her hospital window into visions of horror and delight.  Anna and the reader go ever deeper into a strangely beautiful story about hope and love and orange-bellied parrots.

Richard Flanagan's novels have received numerous honours and are published in forty-two countries.  Jennifer Byrne is a celebrated Australian journalist, editor, Logie-winning presenter, former publisher and host of the ABC’s The Book Club.
