“Living on Hope Street” Book Launch
Hi Melbourne peeps!
After many years of dreaming, sweating, writing and rewriting, the time has come to launch my first novel Living on Hope Street at the Williamstown Literary Festival – Williamstiwn Town Hall Council Chamber on Saturday June 17 from 5-6pm. I’ll be in conversation with the lovely Lucia Nardo and the book will be launched by Sherryl Clark. Would love to see you there! ????
About the book:
‘Living on Hope Street is a big-hearted, compassionate work. Divaroren is a ferociously good storyteller and every character breathes life, every character convinces. This book is an absolute joy to read.’ CHRISTOS TSIOLKAS
We all love someone. We all fear something. Sometimes they live right next door – or even closer.
Kane will do everything he can to save his mother and his little brother Sam from the violence of his father, even if it means becoming a monster himself.
Mrs Aslan will protect the boys no matter what – even though her own family is in pieces.
Ada wants a family she can count on, while she faces new questions about herself.
Mr Bailey is afraid of the refugees next door, but his worst fear will take another form.
And Gugulethu is just trying to make a life away from terror.
On this street, everyone comes from different places, but to find peace they will have to discover what unites them.
A deeply moving, unflinching portrait of modern Australian suburban life.
