How do we find joy at times when we need it most? Pulitzer Prize-winning author Andrew Sean Greer discusses turning the trials of modern life – ageing, grief and unavoidable change – into stories that uplift us and make us laugh in equal measure.

‘A writer friend once said the hardest thing to write about is joy. I took it as a challenge.’

For American novelist Andrew Sean Greer, the search for joy is a continued source of creative inspiration – as evidenced in his international bestselling and Pulitzer Prize-winning novel Less, and now again in its humorously honest new sequel, Less is Lost.

Warm, witty and profound, Less is Lost sees the lovable Arthur Less return for an unforgettable road trip across America as he confronts his personal demons and attempts to decipher the riddle of love.

For this Spring Fling event, Andrew Sean Greer made his own journey to Australia to join writer and broadcaster Benjamin Law in-conversation. Together they wade through ageing, grief and unavoidable change to find creativity, friendship and love.

Andrew Sean Greer’s appearance was made possible with the generous support of Hachette Australia.
