‘Some years, very good books win the Man Booker prize,’ said A.C. Grayling, Chair of Judges for the Man Booker Prize 2014. ‘But this year a masterpiece has won it.’ Now everyone, including US President Barack Obama, is reading it.

Appearing in Sydney for the first time since his 2014 Man Booker Prize win for The Narrow Road to the Deep North, Richard Flanagan sits down with Jennifer Byrne for a candid chat about writing, his body of work, and, yes, winning the Booker.
