Episode 14 – 29 August 2018

On this episode, host Mel Cranenburgh is joined by Brooklyn based author Maria Dahvana Headley who was in town for the Melbourne Writer’s Festival. They talk about Headley’s most recent book The Mere Wife, a modern-day re-imagining of Beowulf. Described by critics as “exquisite and imaginative” and “on-point and thought provoking”, The Mere Wife is a “wild adventure; a celebration of monsters, myths, and the power of mother-love”.
She is then joined by Dr SanazFotouhi a dynamic writer, filmmaker and director of Asia Pacific Writers and Translators to talk about the Melbourne City of Literature event, A Persian Feast with Iranian Thinkers.
