In 2011, Turia Pitt was trapped by a grassfire and suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body. She has since become a household name and one of the most admired women in Australia, known for her recovery, advocacy, resilience and charm. Turia’s new memoir, Unmasked (written with Bryce Corbett), reveals the woman behind the headlines. Examining sudden celebrity, relationships and the toll of her accident, Unmasked is an intimate glimpse into Turia’s life. Turia is in conversation with the ABC’s Michaela Kalowski.
