Panel Borders: Writing as the Other
Continuing a month of shows about comics that are about or from Australasia, Alex Fitch talks to cartoonist turned novelist Ed Hillyer about The Clay Dreaming – his account of an Aborigine Cricket Team in 19th Century Britain, and how writing a book without pictures differs to his experience of writing comics. Alex also talks to French Bande dessinée creator L.F. Bollée about writing the graphic novel Terra Australis, which depicts the conquering of Australia. Recorded in front of a live audience at the Australia / New Zealand Literature Festival 2014.
