    With The Sound of One Hand Clapping, which made him one of Australia's most awarded young writers, Richard Flanagan made his acclaimed American debut. Now he gives us an extraordinary, deeply moving novel as big and brawling, as strange and compelling as the land and people it describes. Beneath a waterfall on a remote Tasmanian mountain river, Aljaz Cosini, river guide, is drowning. Beset by visions at once horrible and fabulous, he relives not just his own life but that of his family and forebears.

One night Bojan's wife walked off into a blizzard, never to return - leaving Bojan to drink too much to quiet his ghosts and to care for his three-year-old daughter, Sonja, alone.

    Richard Flanagan's speeches have become unique literary events attended by sellout crowds, reported in national and international media, and a spur to widespread debate and discussion. Gathered here are three of his recent speeches in which he interweaves topics as diverse as troubadour poetry, love stories and the murder of the refugee Reza Barati; his top 10 Tasmanian novels and the Australian Pacific solution; and his much-celebrated National Press Club address where he questioned the militarisation of Australian memory and argued for the need for formal Indigenous recognition.
