Tirra Lirra by the River

Studying a book or film can be a short-cut to consigning it to boredom. But our Texts in the City series – a gift to students, their teachers and lifelong learners – brings the VCE English and Literature lists to life.

Each week, our hosts – authors Lili Wilkinson and Tony Birch – will interview experts intimately familiar with the texts, unearthing those hidden gems that could help your essay shine.

This week, we look at Jessica Anderson’s 1978 novel Tirra Lirra by the River.

Presented in association with The Victorian Association for the Teaching of English.
