Sometimes we know we are making life-changing decisions. On other occasions, the impact of our decisions is revealed retrospectively. In their books The Bridge and Invented Lives, Enza Gandolfo and Andrea Goldsmith explore the way one key choice can change a life’s trajectory. In Invented Lives, a chance encounter brings Soviet exile Galina to Australia and a life of foreign freedom. The folly of youth has devastating consequences in the profoundly moving The Bridge.
Chair: Natasha Cica
