About the Show
One of Australia’s greatest writers and seer of our times, Booker Prize-winner Richard Flanagan’s The Living Sea of Waking Dreams describes the end of a family and the end of the world. Documenting the slow death of a matriarch in a Hobart hospital, and the tumult it causes amongst her children, this achingly sad but still hopeful novel deploys magical realism, black humour and Richard’s masterfully poetic prose to explore the way humanity loves, neglects and destroys itself and the beautiful world it inhabits.
