Jane Caro in conversation
Cinema Nova, 380 Lygon St, Carlton
You’ve seen her on television, you’ve heard on radio, you read her in the weekend papers and now from the Walkley Award winning journalist, social commentator and author comes a gripping domestic thriller with a moral dilemma at its core. Jane Caro has written a stunning novel that asks what any of us might do when faced with a threat to the people we hold most dear. We are completely delighted to have Jane with us for one night only to discuss the power of love and fury.
Her novel, The Mother, is centred on Miriam Duffy, a respectable widow, real estate agent and devoted mother and grandmother. She was thrilled when her younger daughter, Ally, married her true love, but as time goes by Miriam watches in disbelief and growing fear as Ally’s perfect husband starts controlling her and their children, and cutting them off from the rest of the world. As the situation escalates and the law proves incapable of protecting them, Miriam is faced with an unthinkable decision. But she will do anything for the people she loves most in the world. Wouldn’t you?
Tickets are $30 per person and include a signed copy of The Mother.
