A special episode: Anna chats with author Kylie Needham about her debut novel, Girl In A Pink Dress.
Girl in a Pink Dress centres on Frances, an artist in her 40s who is invited to her former lover's exhibition opening in Sydney. A beautiful, spare novel that explores the idea of two artists living together and female rage, against the backdrop of the Australian landscape. Described as "a quiet triumph" (Heather Rose) and "breathtakingly good" (David Wenham), we loved this book.
