Boffins Books is delighted to partner with FANE to present Richard Flanagan: The Living Sea of Waking Dreams.  Richard will be joined in conversation by Jennifer Byrne, and the event will be broadcast via Vimeo. 

The Living Sea of Waking Dreams is an ember storm of a novel.  This Booker Prize-winning novelist Richard Flanagan at his most moving-and astonishing-best.

In a world of perennial fire and growing extinctions, Anna's aged mother is dying-if her three children would just allow it.  Condemned by their pity to living she increasingly escapes through her hospital window into visions of horror and delight.  Anna and the reader go ever into a strangely beautiful story about hope and love and orange-bellied parrots.

Richard Flanagan's novels have received numerous honours and are published in forty-two countries.  He won the Booker Prize for The Narrow Road to the Deep North and the Commonwealth Prize for Gould's Book of Fish.

Jennifer Byrne is a celebrated journalist, editor, quizmaster, Logie-winning presenter, former publisher and host of the ABC's decade-spanning The Book Club (which sadly concluded in 2017).
