To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the publication of Stiff, the very first Murray Whelan tale, Shane Maloney will be our latest guest at Montalto. Covering the breadth of his career, Shane will delve into the screen adaptations of Stiff and The Brush-Off and give us the low-down on what our Victorian hero is up to these days.
Shane will be in conversation with Mary Delahunty.
Born in Hamilton in western Victoria in 1953, Shane Maloney is one of Australia’s most popular novelists. His award-winning and much-loved Murray Whelan series – Stiff, The Brush-Off, Nice Try, The Big Ask, Something Fishy and Sucked In – has been published around the world.
Mary Delahunty is a Gold Walkley Award winning journalist and presenter with ABC TV and commercial networks. She served for 7 years as a Victorian state government minister in senior portfolios and has seen the tensions from both sides. She is currently working as a consultant in government, media and the non-for profit sector where she heads numerous boards.
