MINI BOOK REVIEW: Question 7 and Richard Flanagan

To be free I had to squeeze the convict blood out of me drop by drop, word by word, book by book. 

The highlight of the year, a work with the power to change hearts, minds and history…

An arresting and revelatory book (let’s call it a memoir) from Booker Winner Richard Flanagan, traversing the last century, questioning love, fate and identity. Question 7 is a genuine gift to Australian literature. We can’t wait to share it with you.

In the daisy chain of events that made him Flanagan considers the life and work of HG Wells, the creation and detonation of the atomic bomb, inquires deeply into Flanagan family history and vividly recollects his near-death on the Franklin River. 


We welcome Question 7 and Richard Flanagan to Bookoccino.
