Event description

Description

Join critically acclaimed, bestselling author of WIMMERA, Mark Brandi, for a live-skype chat about his latest release, THE RIP.

About the author...

Mark is a rising star of Australian literature and his first novel WIMMERA won the coveted British Crime Writers’ Association Debut Dagger, and was named Best Debut at the 2018 Australian Indie Book Awards.


About the book...

THE RIP is an urban crime novel following a hidden trio of drifters and addicts in inner city Melbourne. Mark’s inspiration comes from his intimate knowledge of Richmond where in 2017 heroin overdose deaths reached a 17-year high, with 34 of those deaths occurring in a four-block area. Crucially, it subverts some of the more paternalistic beliefs about the nature of homelessness and addiction. While faced with enormously challenging circumstances, both main characters are portrayed with respect and dignity, and not as passive victims of circumstance.

Grab your copy of The Rip from The Sitting Wombat, 35 Wharf St, Forster.
