Liz Byrski: In Love and War, and Lena

Liz Byrski was interviewed recently on WritingWA‘s Cover to Cover, about her most recent book, In Love and War: Nursing Heroes. Cover to Cover host Meri Fatin described the process of writing In Love and War as “as almost like a piece of plastic surgery in itself”.

In this short excerpt from the 40-minute interview, Liz talks about what she learned from writing In Love and War. She also has some warm and generous things to say about my book, The Life and Loves of Lena Gaunt.

Here are links to the whole episode featuring Liz, as well as previous episodes.
