Tony Birch & Paige Clark

View descriptionShare

Two extraordinary writers of short fiction come together to discuss crafting fully realised worlds that capture our interest over just a few pages. Patrick White Literary Award winner Tony Birch’s latest collection of short stories (Dark as Last Night) captures the humanity and humour of kids toughened beyond their years on the edges of society. Paige Clark’s debut (She Is Haunted) showcases an entrancing new literary voice. Drawing comparisons to Carmen Maria Machado, Paige runs with themes such as race, family and grief into surreal and uneasy places. Tony and Paige are in conversation with Declan Fry.
