In conversation with Bri Lee

Thursday, 18th April 2024 - 6:30pm to 8:30pm


Join multi-award-winning author, academic, and activist Bri Lee for the launch of her new book The Work.

A stunning debut novel about art, power, love and money from the acclaimed and bestselling author of Eggshell Skull.

Lally has invested everything into her gallery in Manhattan and the sacrifices are finally paying off. Pat is a scholarship boy desperate to establish himself in Sydney’s antiquities scene. When they meet at New York’s Armory Show their chemistry is instant – fighting about art and politics is just foreplay.

If love costs and art takes, what price do we pay for wanting it all?

The Work is about the biggest intersections of life: of art and commerce, of intimacy and distance, of talent and entitlement, and of labour and privilege. Dazzling, funny and unforgettable, it is an epic and forensic exploration of modern love and passion, politics and power.

An ambitious and meticulously modern fable about art, sex, money, power and the perils of self-curation, The Work announces a brilliant new voice in Australian fiction.

Bri Lee will be joined in conversation by Gillian O’Shaughnessy.

Presented by the Margaret River Readers & Writers Festival.
