This event has now passed.

Julie Koh and Zhu Yue ride the edges of realism in their fiction: stepping back from the day-to-day, they employ the surreal or near-real as a way of re-assessing our relationships with ourselves and society. In today’s event they discuss their own feelings about surrealism: is there pleasure in leaving the known world behind? Or does the anxiety of life pervade everything, even fiction?

Guests: Julie koh, Zhu Yue (Author of Chaos of Fiction)

This event is part of the public programmes organised by the 2019 Australian Writers Week in China.
