Book Launch: One Hundred Days
The Collective, 139 Elgin Street, Carlton
Join us for the book launch of Alice Pung’s new novel, One Hundred Days.
In a heady whirlwind of independence, lust and defiance, sixteen-year-old Karuna falls pregnant. Not on purpose, but not entirely by accident, either. Incensed, Karuna’s mother, already over-protective, confines her to their fourteenth-storey housing-commission flat, to keep her safe from the outside world – and make sure she can’t get into any more trouble. One Hundred Days is a fractured fairytale exploring the fault lines between love and control. It is a magnificent new work from one of Australia’s most celebrated writers.
