In The Other Side of the World Charlotte is struggling. With motherhood, with the changes marriage and parenthood bring, with losing the time and the energy to paint. Henry wants things to be as they were and can’t face another English winter. When a brochure is slipped through the letterbox slot, Henry he believes he has the answer: ‘Australia brings out the best in you.’ But does it?

Stephanie Bishop’s stunning new novel The Other Side of the World has just been launched to critical acclaim. In this ‘In Conversation’ event she talks about her new novel, motherhood, migration, nostalgia and the writing life.

The Other Side of the World is Stephanie Bishop’s second novel. It was shortlisted for the 2014 Australian/Vogel's Literary Award. Her first novel was The Singing, for which she was named one of the Sydney Morning Herald’s Best Young Australian Novelists. The Singing was shortlisted for the Kathleen Mitchell Award.
