WHY FICTION?

Australian writer Alex Miller’s latest book The Passage of Love is an autobiographical novel; Fiona Farrell’s Decline and Fall on Savage Street explores one hundred years of history in the shadow of the Christchurch earthquakes, a fictional companion to her previous nonfictional work The Villa at the End of Empire. Both accomplished writers across genres, Miller and Farrell discuss why they opted for fiction to tell their very real stories, with Catherine Robertson.

Due to the cancellation of Alex Miller’s visit to Auckland, 2017 Ockham New Zealand Book Awards Acorn Foundation Fiction Prize winner Catherine Chidgey, author of ‘found novel’ Beat of the Pendulum, joins Fiona Farrell and Catherine Robertson to discuss the choice of fiction to tell real stories.
