2013 Ray Mathew Lecture: Peter Robb presents 'Two Exiles'
Towards the end of the nineteenth century, a woman and a man were born at opposite ends of the earth. Each died in south-eastern Australia over 80 years later. Strangers to each other, they lived vastly different lives. Both were known to Peter Robb, who remembers them here and speaks about the forms that exile can take, the challenge and the cost.
Peter Robb’s books include Midnight in Sicily, M, A Death in Brazil and Street Fight in Naples, which have been published around the world to acclaim and controversy. His most recent book is Lives.
The Ray Mathew lecture is presented in honour of the Australian expatriate poet and playwright. Includes refreshments and book signing.
