On one level Deeper Water is a ‘coming-of-age tour de force’: a tale of innocence and awakening, a raging river and a stranded stranger. At a deeper level it is an examination of modern life and the ways we disconnect from nature, including the gains and costs of this perceived separation.
The Big Book Club highlights two books of the festival for you to read in advance before listening to the authors discuss their work in depth with regular festival guest, Jason Steger. As literary editor for The Age and regular panellist on ABC’s The Book Club, Jason’s blend of experience, insight and intimacy makes for compelling conversations with guest authors, with time for audience questions at the end.
