Described by The Washington Post as “one of our greatest living novelists”, Booker Prize-winner Richard Flanagan’s new book Question 7 is being hailed as his best yet.

Spanning from his father’s experiences as a prisoner of war near Hiroshima at the time the atom bomb is dropped, to Flanagan’s home of Tasmania, it is a text that Tim Winton has praised as “the strangest and most beautiful memoir” he has read, and Peter Carey has commented that it may be “the most significant work of Australian art in the last one hundred years”.

Flanagan joins Simon Wilson to discuss his acclaimed work, and its exploration of how our lives so often arise out of the stories of others, and the stories we invent about ourselves.
