Liane Moriarty's Big Little Lies has been a major TV hit. The series’ executive producer, Reese Witherspoon, is now working on a movie adaptation of Jane Harper's The Dry. Local audiences have been glued to the Jack Irish ABC TV series and to podcasts such as Trace and The Teacher’s Pet, and the last few years have seen a juggernaut of local book sales for established names and newcomers alike. In our second Group Texts event, celebrating great Australian genre writers, we hear from some of the stars of Australian crime writing; writers of thrillers, true-crime investigations and classic whodunnits. Each writer shares a short reflection or provocation on the crime genre, followed by a panel discussion. They discuss sub-genres, ethics and aesthetics – and what crime writing can tell us about ourselves and the world we live in. Hosted by Emma Viskic, with Sulari Gentill, Mark Brandi, Rachael Brown, Laura Elizabeth Woollett and Gary Disher.
Cheryl Akle talks to award-winning crime writer and musician Emma Viskic. They discuss music, writing, and Emma's recent book, 'And Fire Came Down'.
