The Away-bound Train - Writers on Place



Be it in the Australian bush or an English country garden, place is at the heart of works by these four extraordinary writers.

Iconic poet Les Murray has long chronicled the rough beauty of the Australian landscape; novelist Alan Hollinghurst's revelations of England’s twilight places have made him a Man Booker favourite; acclaimed novelist and playwright Caryl Phillips writes some of our most compelling explorations about the complexities of travel; and Griffin Prize winning poet and essayist Dionne Brand’s powerful narratives help illuminate an increasingly dangerous post 9/11 world.

Join them for an evening of readings and conversation with Peter Goldsworthy.
