Voices From Elsewhere: John Birmingham

Listen to Voices From Elsewhere: John Birmingham

On stage for our Gala Night of Storytelling: Voices From Elsewhere, writer John Birmingham tells the story of his friend’s enthusiasm for martial arts.

Birmingham explains how this passion and its focus on mental discipline may have inadvertently saved his protagonist from a dramatic end - but not in the way one might expect.
