View descriptionShare
Published Jul 6, 2022, 12:32 AM

The literary debut of celebrated musician Warren Ellis, Nina Simone’s Gum, takes its name from an unlikely keepsake he snatched from the underside of his idol’s piano in a moment of rapture. Join Warren as he sheds light on his playful memoir in which a meaning-rich relic blossoms into a metaphor for art, music and obsession, traversing his childhood in country Victoria, collaborations with Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, and prize-winning work with Dirty Three. Warren joins live via video in conversation with Marieke Hardy.
