Janette Turner Hospital: Turbulent Voices

Listen to Janette Turner Hospital: Turbulent Voices

Janette Turner Hospital, one of Australia’s most admired writers, speaks on a lifetime of writing – and teaching – literature. She notes similarities between America’s South and Australia’s Queensland, discusses her darkest characters and divulges the literary benefits of being an “avid listener”.

Janette is joined in conversation by the Wheeler Centre’s senior writer/editor, Jo Case, who in the lead up to this discussion pre-empted many of its themes in an essay for this website.
