In the lead-up to Christmas, we offer Lowy research staff selections for the best book they've read this year.
The Narrow Road to the Deep North, by Richard Flanagan. Selected by Michael Fullilove, Executive Director.
Richard Flanagan’s new novel is magnificent. It is, at times, grim. But it contains profound insights on war, the Australian character — and, most importantly, love. On Remembrance Day I interviewed Richard at the Lowy Institute on the themes of his book.
