Episode 38 – 15 May 2019

In this episode, host Mel Cranenburgh talks to 2019 Nature Writing Prize co-winner Jenny Sinclair about her book An Orchard For My Father. Jenny’s previous non-fiction books include Much Ado About Melbourne (Affirm Press, 2015) (first published as When We Think About Melbourne, 2010) and A Walking Shadow (Arcade Publications, 2012). As a journalist, she has been on staff at The Age and at local newspapers, and written for a wide variety of publications.

Mel’s then joined by author Alice Robinson to chat about her novel The Glad Shout, set in a frightening future Melbourne where storms and floods have ravaged the city; families have been separated, and food and water supplies are limited. Alice’s first novel Anchor Point was long-listed for the Stella Prize.
