Event description

Description

Before Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes, there was Fergus Hume’s The mystery of a hansom cab—the biggest- and fastest-selling detective novel of the 1800s, and Australia’s first literary blockbuster.
Author Lucy Sussex will share the engrossing tale of Fergus Hume and his best-seller—equally colourful portraits of Melbourne’s blossoming cultural life in the late 1800s—as presented in her rigorously researched book Blockbuster!

Free, bookings essential.
