Introduction

——

Sara Baume will share her two novels Spill Simmer Falter Wither and A Line Made by Walking during the speech. In Baume’s multi award-winning debut novel, Spill Simmer Falter Wither, a 57-year-old misfit, who is “too old for starting over, too young for giving up” takes in a one-eyed, vicious dog that no one else would take. As the seasons pass their relationship grows and as their life is thrown into turmoil a profound story of loss, loneliness and friendship emerges in what was hailed as “a stunning and wonderful achievement by a writer touched by greatness.” In Baume’s latest novel, A Line Made by Walking, a young artist retreats to a rural bungalow as she tries to regain her footing in art and life. Finding little comfort in human interaction, she turns her camera lens on the natural world and its reassuring cycle of life and death. What emerges is a profound meditation on the interconnectedness of wilderness, art and individual experience, and a powerful exploration of human frailty.
