Studying a book or film can be a short-cut to consigning it to boredom. But our Texts in the City series – a gift to students, their teachers and lifelong learners – brings the VCE English and Literature lists to life.
Each week, our hosts – authors Lili Wilkinson and Tony Birch – will interview experts intimately familiar with the texts, unearthing those hidden gems that could help your essay shine.
This week, join Tony Birch and Josephine Rowe for a look at Raymond Carver’s 1976 short-story collection, Will You Please Be Quiet, Please?.
Tony Birch is the author of the acclaimed novel, Blood (UQP 2011), shortlisted for this year’s Miles Franklin Award. He has also published widely as a short fiction writer.
Josephine Rowe was born in 1984 and lives in Melbourne’s inner-west with her husband and cat. Her new short story collection, Tarcutta Wake, is published by UQP. (rodneyvc)
