John Purcell in conversation

Readings Emporium, Woiwurrung Country, Emporium Melbourne, Shop 1-016/287 Lonsdale St, Melbourne VIC 3000

Join us to hear John Purcell, bestselling author of The Girl on the Page, talk about his latest novel The Lessons, a compelling novel about love and betrayal.

This is a novel about the painful lessons life has to teach us, about ourselves, about love, honesty and morality. Echoing novels such as Persuasion and A Room with a View and the memoir An Education, The Lessons is a striking and powerful story about the loss of innocence and betrayal and how much we can forgive – if we forgive.
