Anita Shreve

Listen to Anita Shreve

Much-loved North American novelist Anita Shreve’s latest novel, Rescue, is a masterful portrayal of a family trying to understand its own fractured past and begin again. In conversation with Jane Sullivan, Shreve discusses the detail of her work spanning 17 novels and two works of fiction, and recounts the rapid shift in her popularity since The Pilot’s Wife was featured in Oprah’s Book Club in 1999.

Presented in partnership with the Brisbane Writers Festival.
