AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Nigel Featherstone is a well-known and well-loved writer in the Australian literary community. Author of critically-acclaimed novel, Remnants (Pandanus Books, 2005), three novellas — The Beach Volcano (2014), I’m Ready Now (2012) and Fall On Me (2011) published by Blemish Books — and over fifty short stories, he writes about family dynamics, masculinity, history and secrets. In his latest novel, Bodies of Men (Hachette, 2019), set between 1941 Egypt and Australia, he tells the story of two soldiers who ultimately find love and refuge in one another during dangerous, more conservative times. Nigel Featherstone talks here about war, peace, masculinity within the Australian context, relationships of longevity, and the writing life.'
