Thomas Keneally – Daughters of Mars
The latest novel from the Booker Prize-winning author of Schindler's Ark tells the epic story of two sisters who leave their home in rural Australia to serve as nurses in the distant battlefields of the First World War. In this event to mark the paperback publication of Daughters of Mars, Thomas Kenneally discusses the journals that inspired this sweeping, and brutally accurate, account of the horrors of war, as well as the challenges of crafting a narrative that balances the epic with the intimate. He will be in conversation with Robert Collins, Deputy Literary Editor of The Sunday Times.
'This is a novel on an epic scale: its plentitude and anguish are life-enhancing, and the huge talents of Thomas Keneally are everywhere on display' (The Guardian)
