Blood: Tony Birch

ADELAIDE WRITERS' WEEK - WEDNESDAY MARCH 6 2013

Australia

West Stage, 3.45pm

Tony Birch was born in inner-city Melbourne, into a large family of Aboriginal, West Indian and Irish descent. His upbringing was challenging and this is reflected in much of his fiction, not only his semi-autobiographical debut Shadowboxing, but also his more recent Blood. Birch writes incredibly nuanced characters, characters whose humanity manages to sustain them in the face of violence and corruption. Join him in conversation with Richard Fidler.

Highlights from this session will be tweeted live by SA's prolific arts and cultural tweeters.  Search for #AdlWW on Twitter.
