EPISODE DESCRIPTION

Tonight a show all about re-visiting and re-imagining Australian history, we talk with two authors who have taken inspiration from key figures and events in the history of this country for their new novels.

First up, the controversial dismissal of Prime Minister Gough Whitlam in 1975 is the basis of Nicholas Hasluck new political thriller, Neda Vanovac speaks with him about family, politics and the Cold War.

We also hear from author and actor, Peter Docker about his second novel, The Waterboys, set in an apocalyptic future in a continent caught up in a violent struggle for control of water. I speak with him about violence, grog and his relationship to Country.

Nicholas Hasluck, The Dismissal - published by Fourth Estate - interviewed by Neda Vanovac

Peter Docker, The Waterboys, published by Freemantle Press - interviewed by Jeanavive McGregor
