Melissa Lucashenko: Too Much Lip

By Sydney Writers' Festival

Melissa Lucashenko has just won the 2019 Miles Franklin Literary Award for Too Much Lip, praised by the judges as "a novel of celebratory defiance". The Walkley Award-winning Goorie writer joins ABC RN’s Daniel Browning to talk about her gritty, darkly comic new book, Too Much Lip. The story gradually and explosively reveals the painful secrets in a calamitous Aboriginal family after its outlaw hero roars into her hometown on a stolen Harley to see her dying father. Hailed as "funny and fierce" by The Saturday Paper, the novel offers redemption and forgiveness where none seems possible.
