Event description

Description

From her father's secret service in World War II to his relationships with some of the most famous bohemian artists in postwar Europe, Melbourne-based writer Louisa Deasey has unearthed letters, dated from 1949 that detail a passionate affair between her father Denison and a Frenchwoman Michelle, in post-war London. This is a portrait of a fascinating man, both at the epicenter and the mercy of the social and political currents of his time. ‘A Letter from Paris’ is about the stories we tell ourselves, and the secrets the past can uncover. A compelling tale of inheritance and creativity, loss and reunion, it shows the power of the written word to cross the bridges of time.
