Perth Writers Festival: The Good People - WA, AUS

  • Octagon Theatre 35 Stirling Highway Nedlands, WA, 6009 Australia (map)

A stunning exploration of folklore and belief, rituals and stories.

Hannah Kent’s Burial Rites was one of the most talked about debut novels in Australia. Readers fell in love with her haunting tale of ritual and isolation in Iceland.

Her new book The Good People is equally exceptional, a stunning exploration of folklore and belief, rituals and stories in 19th century Ireland. Kent captures the beauty and lyricism of Ireland with great empathy for the struggle of the Irish people of that time.

She joins Richard Fidler in conversation about her brilliant new novel.

'The Good People gave me chills ... a haunting novel, shrewdly conceived and beautifully written.' THE AUSTRALIAN
