Podcast - Jessica Au And Lara Williams Chat Cold Enough For Snow - 25/4/24

Miss the event? No worries, grab a brew and listen.

"A mother and daughter travel from abroad to meet in Tokyo: they walk along the canals through the autumn evenings, escape the typhoon rains, share meals in small cafés and restaurants, and visit galleries to see some of the city’s most radical modern art. All the while, they talk: about the weather, horoscopes, clothes, and objects, about family, distance, and memory. But uncertainties abound. Who is really speaking here – is it only the daughter? And what is the real reason behind this elliptical, perhaps even spectral journey? At once a careful reckoning and an elegy, Cold Enough for Snow questions whether any of us speak a common language, which dimensions can contain love, and what claim we have to truly know another’s inner world."

On the Thursday 25th April Jessica Au, author, bookseller and Novel Prize winner travelled from Melbourne to Stockport via Paris to chat with Lara Williams, author of The Odyssey (travelled from North Manchester).

Signed copies of Au's book are now available here.
