Rachel Cusk: Second Place


Thursday 29 April from 8:30pm to 9:30pm


Premium: $40Adult: $35Concession: $30

“I think this is a moment in culture, generally, where people are suddenly looking again at everything that was accepted, voices that have been ringing in our ears forever, and suddenly thinking, I’m really sick of this, and I don’t want to read it anymore.” – Rachel Cusk

Rachel Cusk is a true original. Her Outline trilogy attracted acclaim and a legion of readers because it felt like something new from a voice in fiction we hadn’t heard before. The award-winning author appears live via video from the UK to discuss her extraordinary career in writing and Second Place, her new fable of human destiny and decline, with Annabel Crabb.

This event is Auslan interpreted.
