    Tsundoku is the Japanese word for that pile of books beside your bed that just keeps on growing. It’s the sign of a reader whose book appetite is greater than the time they have to do all that reading!

    Award winning Melbourne author Hannah Kent talks about her new book Devotion - a love story that traverses oceans, reality and magic.

    And we revisit the Virginia Woolfe classic, Mrs Dalloway, which follows a day in the life of a high society lady in the 1920s.

  • Victoria Hannan’s Marshmallow

    An innocuous little marshmallow shatters the life of a group of friends. As the anniversary of the horrible event looms, each must come to terms with their altered selves and address what their lives can now be.

    And...

    How might we deal with alien life forms determined to destroy us if they were to enter our lives disguised as beloved children?  We compare Wyndham’s chilling sci-fi novel with its 21st century TV adaptation.
