Cassandra Austin in conversation
Please note: This is an online event.
We are thrilled to have American based author Cassandra Austin talking with her friend Sonia Orchard about her new novel, Like Mother.
Like Mother explores the notions of secrets, and breaking points. Set in 1969, a young mother in small-town Australia can’t get past the kitchen door. Louise Ashland is exhausted – her husband, Steven, is away on the road and her mother, Gladys, won’t leave her alone. At least her baby, Dolores, has finally stopped screaming and is sweetly sleeping in her cot. Right where Louise left her. Or is she? Like Mother explores what is handed down from generation to generation, and asks us whether a woman’s home is her castle or her cage.
