Head to the City of Perth Library’s foyer for a showcase of the hard work Fremantle Press have done over their past forty years. Brendan’s novel Carousel is included amongst some incredible West Australian talent.
The display will run until the 12th of April.
“We have selected titles from the whole sweep of the collection to showcase the talented local writers and illustrators in our State, and to tell a visual story of how publishing has changed over time.”
Joanna Andrew, Assistant Manager, City of Perth Library
Brendan was interviewed by Caitlin Nienaber on RTRFM’s Breakfast show this morning.
Brendan and Caitlin talked about the sequel to Carousel, Beyond Carousel (out now in all good bookshops!). They also discussed how two overseas musicians could end up in the sprawling mall of Carousel shopping centre, and what post-apocalyptic Perth might look like.
If you missed it, you can listen over on the RTRFM website or below.
Carousel has been reviewed by Louisa Loder, a fellow West Australian author.
“The almost-clinical sprawl of Carousel shopping centre in Perth’s east stars as a character of its own in this cleverly constructed book by local author and filmmaker Brendan Ritchie. Deceptively simple descriptions slowly build an incredible sense of foreboding, and made it difficult for me to put the book down and quiet my mind.”
