Richard Flanagan - Supreme storyteller

Richard Flanagan is regarded internationally as one of Australia’s pre-eminent authors. His novels have been published in 26 countries, his first Death of a River Guide being described by The Times Literary Supplement as “one of the most auspicious debuts in Australian writing.”

The Sound of One Hand Clapping had sales of more than 180,000 in Australia alone and Gould’s Book of Fish was hailed around the world as a masterpiece, winning the 2002 Commonwealth Writers’ Prize. His fourth novel The Unknown Terrorist was termed “stunning” by the New York Times and his latest Wanting, a New Yorker Notable Book of the Year.

An environmentalist who is at times controversial, Richard has a rapid named after him on the Franklin River and following an article exploring the close relationship between woodchipping giant Gunns and the Tasmanian Labor Party, then Premier Paul Lennon declared, “Richard Flanagan and his fictions are not welcome in the new Tasmania.”

Well known 612 ABC Brisbane and Coast FM broadcaster Richard Fidler will talk to Richard about his life as an acclaimed writer, film writer and director and outdoorsman. We will also hear about the novel he is now writing. It takes place over one day in a Japanese POW camp on the Death Railway in Thailand and will be published next year. We invite you to meet and hear the two Richards over what will be a fascinating lunch.
