The Late Great: Marcus Clarke
Iconic Australian literature doesn’t come much more iconic than For the Term of His Natural Life, the quintessential convict tale. We remember its author: journalist, poet and novelist Marcus Clarke, and reflect on the urban bohemian writer in all his glory, and the historical impulses behind Australia’s definitive ‘ripping yarn’. Hosted by Tony Moore, with writer Robyn Annear and rare books expert Des Cowley.
