Jamila Rizvi and Astrid Edwards consider the determination of characters, authors and survivors to go beyond the page and have an impact on the real world.
Chapter 1: How determined do Jamila and Astrid feel, both in lockdown in Melbourne, during this, the longest and saddest of years?
Chapter 2: Astrid introduces the new dystopian literary thriller from Kate Mildenhall, The Mother Fault.
Chapter 3: Jamila explores The Vanishing Half, the latest novel from Brit Bennet, whose standout debut The Mothers earned great acclaim.
Recommendations: Astrid throws back to Season 1 and recommends Wolfe Island by Lucy Treloar and The Glad Shout by Alice Robinson as the perfect reading accompaniments to The Mother Fault. Jamila also brings back a recommendation from Season 1 - Chanel Miller's Know My Name. Jamila also introduces The Space Between, a new book from Michelle Andrews and Zara McDonald.
Join us on Thursday for an interview on determination with Maxine Beneba Clarke.
