Michelle de Kretser – How Life Could Be Different

Set in Sydney, Paris and Sri Lanka, Michelle de Kretser’s new novel The Life to Come tackles Australian identity and cosmopolitanism. In a searing critique of the over-the-top materialism of middle-class progressives, and the culture of ‘curating the self’ in social media, the novel is contemporary but effortlessly classic.

One of Australia’s finest writers, Michelle de Kretser will be in conversation with Stephen Romei, literary editor at The Australian.

Speakers: Michelle de Kretser with Stephen Romei

Venue: Carrington Hotel
