Join Australian writers Anwen Crawford and Alison Croggon as they open up about their searingly honest and genre-bending new memoirs. Known to many for her music criticism in The Monthly and The New Yorker, Anwen discusses No Document, an elegy to a friendship cut short by death and a model for how we might relate to others in sympathy, solidarity and rebellion. Award-winning novelist and theatre critic, Alison talks about Monsters: a reckoning, a hybrid of memoir and essay that uses her estrangement from her sister as a starting point to examine the long shadow that patriarchy and colonialism cast across our lives. They appear in conversation with Michaela Kalowski.
Alison Croggon is an award-winning novelist, poet, theatre writer, critic, and editor who lives in Melbourne, Australia
