A Country Too Far

Listen to A Country Too Far

One of the most hotly debated and pressing moral issues in contemporary Australia surrounds the fate of asylum seekers. A new anthology of work from 27 of the nation’s finest writers examines all aspects of this complex topic. A Country Too Far features fiction, memoir, poetry and essays that provide an indispensable contribution to the national debate.

Jointly edited by Thomas Keneally and Rosie Scott, the Wheeler Centre presents Rosie in conversation with several of the anthology’s contributors. Hosted by Chris Kremmer, she is joined in discussion of this controversial and heartbreaking question by Arnold Zable, Judith Rodriguez and Rodney Hall.
