Jeff Sparrow in conversation with Crikey editor Jonathan Green

Readings Carlton — 309 Lygon St, Carlton, Victoria, 3053

How hard is it to kill an animal – or even a human? These questions lead Sparrow through history and across Australia and the USA, talking to veterans and slaughtermen, executioners and writers about one of the last remaining taboos. Compassionate, engaged and political, Killing takes us up close to the ways society kills today, meditating on what violence means, not just for perpetrators but for all of us.

Jeff Sparrow is an author and the editor of the Australian literary journal Overland. He and writes regularly for Crikey.
