Songwriter and musician Holly Throsby has drawn high praise as a novelist, with The Sydney Morning Herald likening her to Tim Winton for her “wry affection for a peculiarly Australian dagginess and the rhythms and rituals of small-town life”. Her second novel, Cedar Valley, begins with two new arrivals to a town north of Sydney: a silent man in a well-made suit and a young woman full of questions. Join Holly as she talks about the follow-up to her debut novel Goodwood.
