Book launch: The Art of Disappearing
Readings Hawthorn — 701 Glenferrie Rd, Hawthorn, Victoria, 3122
Gerald Murnane will launch Elisabeth Hanscombe’s The Art of Disappearing, a brave, unflinching memoir of surviving a childhood navigating around a violent and abusive father, whose brooding menace lurks on every page. Psychologically astute, Hanscombe is possessed of an unusually vivid and faithful memory of the terrors of childhood.
