About the Author

The Australian newspaper has described Charlotte Wood as 'one of our most original and provocative writers'. She is the author of six novels and two books of non-fiction. Her bestselling novel, The Natural Way of Things, won the 2016 Stella Prize, the Indie Book of the Year and Indie Book Award for Fiction, was joint winner of the Prime Minister's Literary Award for Fiction, and was published throughout Europe, the United Kingdom and North America. She has been twice shortlisted for the Miles Franklin Literary Award, as well as many others for this and previous works. Her non-fiction books include The Writer's Room, a collection of interviews with authors about the creative process, and Love & Hunger, a book about cooking. She lives in Sydney with her husband.


Taken individually any one of these thoughtful conversations has the capacity to draw the reader into a zone of sympathy and appreciation, even if she has not read the published works of the interviewee. Collectively the conversations constitute a valuable resource for writers, teachers and general readers intrigued by the psychology and craft of making fiction. * The Australian *
