View descriptionShare

Award-winning author Michelle de Kretser (Scary Monsters) speaks with Andrew Pippos about his debut novel Lucky’s – an unforgettable family epic that was shortlisted for the 2021 Prime Minister’s Literary Awards. “In Andrew Pippos’ Lucky’s, the grand story of the Greek diaspora is rendered beautifully intimate,” said Michelle de Kretser. “Pippos writes lively, evocative prose while handling structure and characterisation with flair.” Listen to this conversation that ranges from the local – the Australian Greek literary tradition – to the epic – The Iliad and The Odyssey. And enjoy insights into the craft of writing from two literary sensations along the way.
