Listen to Favel Parrett

Favel Parrett burst onto the Australian literary scene in a flood of well-deserved praise (and comparisons to Tim Winton) with her darkly beautiful debut, Past the Shallows, shortlisted for the Miles Franklin. Her much-anticipated second novel is When the Night Comes – an evocative story about the power that fear and kindness have to change lives.

In partnership with Montalto Vineyard & Olive Grove.
