Caroline Brothers draws on her experience as a historian and foreign correspondent to illuminate in fiction the terrible real-life events surrounding ‘the disappeared’ following Argentina’s 1976 coup. The Memory Stones charts the disintegration of a successful middle-class family as members flee and others vanish following the military takeover. She talks to ABC RN’s Kate Evans about the themes of displacement and war in her work, which echo today’s global crisis as millions flee their homes seeking a better life.
