Description

Literati is a fascinating book that, for the first time in Australian publishing, takes the reader to the desks of their favourite contemporary authors. Comprising candid interviews with equally candid photographs, the book looks at these authors and their day-to-day views on success and fame whilst opening up about their fears, their critics, their fans, their frustrations and their anguish over writer's block! Some of the writers profiled include: Sonya Hartnett, Di Morrissey, Garth Nix, Robert Drewe, John Marsden, Louise Zaetta, Tony Shillitoe, Carmel Bird, Tara Moss, Matthew Reilly, Andy Griffiths, Belinda Alexandra, John Birmingham, Kathryn Fox, Celestine Hitiura Vaite, Peter Craven, and others.
