Alexis Wright: The Swan Book

Listen to Alexis Wright: The Swan Book

The Swan Book is set in the future, with Aboriginal people still living under the Intervention in the north, in an environment fundamentally altered by climate change.

Author Alexis Wright combines energy and humour, myth, legend and fairytale – and finds hope in the bleakest of situations. She talks to Sophie Cunningham about the mechanisms and motivations behind her unique literature.
