Twisted Fortunes with Hernan Diaz


Event Status

Follow the money with 2023 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction winner Hernan Diaz, who appears live in Melbourne exclusively for Spring Fling.

About the Event

‘Money is at the core of it all. An illusion we’ve all agreed to support. Unanimously.’

Hernan Diaz’s latest novel Trust is a propulsive trip through historical New York City that challenges the myths surrounding wealth and exposes the fictions that often pass for history.

Set against the excesses of the roaring twenties and the subsequent economic crash, Trust has been lauded for its interlocking narratives and diverse literary styles, painting a riveting picture of society’s elite and the ways in which wealth warps reality.

Join Diaz at Spring Fling as he discusses Trust and recontextualises our contemporary relationship to money.
