Take Home Reading: Ronnie Scott
Take Home Reading is a new short-form audio series for readers and writers – shining a spotlight on Australian writers with recently released books. In each instalment, you’ll be introduced to a writer, learn a little about what they’ve been reading lately, and hear a short reading from their latest work.
In this episode we’re talking to Ronnie Scott about his debut novel, The Adversary.
The Adversary follows its protagonist from a long Brunswick winter into the sticky heat of one transformative Melbourne summer.
Ronnie was programmed to appear in our Next Big Thing: Here and Gone Edition, which was unfortunately cancelled as part of our preventative measures to stem the spread of coronavirus COVID-19.
Ronnie Scott writes essays and criticism for newspapers, websites and magazines. In 2007 he founded the Lifted Brow, an independent literary magazine. He's a Lecturer in the Writing and Publishing discipline at RMIT University. The Adversary is his first novel.
