Richard Flana­gan ABOUT THE AU­THOR

Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - ON SCREEN -

In 2014, Australian writer Richard Flana­gan won the Man Booker prize for The Nar­row Road to the Deep North. He was born in a tiny min­ing town in Tas­ma­nia, the fifth of six chil­dren. His mother died weeks af­ter he won the prize. “Win­ning the Booker was a catas­tro­phe of good for­tune and I’m grate­ful for it, but it’s not the same thing as los­ing your mum,” he tells The Australian Women’s Weekly. He now lives in Ho­bart with his wife, Ma­jda, and their three daugh­ters
