Bestselling author Elliot Perlman has channelled his observations as a junior lawyer into
Maybe the Horse Will Talk, an unsparing satire looking at how today’s corporate culture dehumanises and disempowers us. Biting, dramatic and laugh-out-loud funny, the novel centres around a fable the protagonist tells his sons about a king who tires of his jester. Described as “Australia’s outstanding social novelist” (The Times Literary Supplement), join Elliot in a conversation about the long-awaited follow-up to his Miles Franklin Award–nominated bestseller, The Street Sweeper.
