The Book Podcast, Ep. 41: Tracy Farr, The Hope Fault

Rosemary Puddy presents and produces The Book Podcast, in which she talks to Australian women writers of fiction and non-fiction about their books and their writing process. As Rosemary puts it on her website:

The Book Podcast is inspired by the The Stella Prize … a major literary award that celebrates Australian women’s writing and … champions cultural change

Kicking off with Episode 1 in February 2017, in the first year of The Book Podcast Rosemary has produced more than 40 episodes. Some highlights: Eliza Henry-Jones on her beautiful second novel Ache; Emma Viskic on And Fire Came Down, the second novel in her unmissable Caleb Zelic crime series; Josephine Wilson on her 2017 Miles Franklin Award-winning novel Extinctions; and Sarah Drummond on her 2018 Dublin Literary Award-longlisted novel The Sound.

In November 2017, I talked with Rosemary about my most recent novel, The Hope Fault, and we also wandered into discussing my first novel, The Life and Loves of Lena Gaunt. That interview was published this week (12 December 2017) as Episode 41 of The Book Podcast.
