Michelle de Kretser: The Life to Come

Published Dec 3, 2018, 2:54 AM

In her Miles Franklin-winning novel, The Life to Come, author Michelle de Kretser casts a satirical eye on a generation of Australians insulated by the mining boom. Set in Sydney, Paris and Sri Lanka, the novel centres on a trio of middle-class characters who consider themselves progressives but travel through the world with little insight into their prejudices and privilege. Christos Tsiolkas chats to the bestselling author about a book that is at once thought-provoking and savagely funny.
