Limberlost is award-winning Tasmanian author Robbie Arnott’s latest novel. In this extraordinary chronicle of one man’s life and his feeling for the land, we meet Ned at age 5 and follow him throughout the moments that define him. Praised for its sparse, beautiful prose, this is a unique coming-of-age story that captures the complexity of family, childhood and our relationship to nature. Join Robbie in conversation with Michaela Kalowski.

Presented with the Readers: Books & Conversations series at Petersham Bowling Club.
