Richard Flanagan in Conversation with Patrick McGrath

Join Richard Flanagan to launch The Narrow Road to the Deep North, his Booker-nominated novel based on the experience of an Australian man in a Japanese prisoner-of-war camp on the 1943 Thai-Burma death railway. Oscillating between scenes of relentless violence and the desolations of war’s aftermath, the novel preserves, improbably, the possibility of redemption—in love, in friendship, in literature. The Guardian calls it “a high point in an already distinguished career” for Flanagan, whose other books include Gould’s Book of Fish and The Sound of One Hand Clapping.  Flanagan will be joined in conversation by novelist Patrick McGrath, who calls The Narrow Road to the Deep North "a big, magnificent novel of passion and horror."
