What We Become

View descriptionShare

In an intimate conversation featuring two of literary Australia’s brightest young talents, Madeleine Ryan (A Room Called Earth) and Yves Rees (All About Yves) speak to Adolfo Aranjuez about laying bare the messiness of bodies, gender and identity, and navigating shifting selfhood. Rees discusses writing their account of coming to understand they were transgender at the age of 30, while Ryan shares her own experience of being diagnosed with autism while writing her novel, a first-person story following a neurodivergent young woman over the course of a night.

Recorded for MWF in 2021.
