Sharlene Allsopp: The Great Undoing
Sharlene Allsopp discusses her dystopian debut novel, The Great Undoing.
About the Event
Inspired equally by real life and the possibilities of the future, Sharlene Allsopp’s debut novel The Great Undoing investigates truth, identity and historical reckoning.
In the near future, all identity information is encoded in digital language. Nations know where everyone is, all the time. Scarlet Friday’s job is to correct historical record. When she is stranded on the other side of the world amidst a global digital collapse and discovers an old history book with fading text, she decides to embed a new history into its pages.
An exciting new voice in Australia’s literary landscape, Allsopp is an alumnus of The Wheeler Centre’s Next Chapter program. Join the author as she launches her new work with host Robert Watkins and special guest, poet Tim Loveday.
