Reading & Book Signing

The Narrow Road to the Deep North

Shifting between a Japanese POW camp and contemporary Australia, the experiences of a young Australian surgeon and the Japanese guards holding him captive, and the visceral realities of war and the haunting memories of an illicit affair, Richard Flanagan's The Narrow Road to the Deep North is more than just a story of war—it's an exploration of good and evil, love and death, truth and guilt, transcendence and loss. For a chance to delve even deeper into its rich, layered story, join us at a reading and signing with Flanagan and celebration of this truly stunning modern classic.


Richard Flanagan Richard Flanagan is the author of five previous novels—Death of a River Guide, The Sound of One Hand Clapping, Goulds Book of Fish, The Unknown Terrorist, and Wanting—which have received numerous honors and have been published in twenty-six countries. He lives in Tasmania.
