Writers Live - Alice Nelson in conversation
5th Oct '18 @ Berkelouw Paddington
Reminiscent of Colm Toibin’s Brooklyn, The Children's House is a breakthrough novel from a humane and perceptive writer exploring the traumas that divide families and the love and hope that creates them.
Alice Nelson skilfully weaves together these shared stories of displacement and trauma into a beautifully told, hope-filled, outstanding novel.
Join us for good wine and conversation as we discuss Alice Nelson's stunning new novel on October 5th at 6.30 pm at Berkelouw Books Paddington (19 Oxford Street, Paddington, 2021).
'Alice Nelson has written that rare kind of novel that sets off sparks in the mind long after finishing. A book of unwavering intelligence that probes the most haunted parts of the psyche, Nelson circumnavigates trauma without succumbing to the temptation to dispel it. The Children’s House is an elegant and finely tuned work that hums with condensed life.' Stephanie Bishop, award-winning author of The Other Side of the World
