Australia Day: 7pm Friday January 26
A delightful evening with Graeme Simsion and Anne Buist
Great Escape Books is absolutely rapt to present Australia’s favorite author couple, Graeme Simsion and Anne Buist in conversation over wine and nibbles about their new wonderful novel, set on the Camino Trail, Two Steps Forward. Graeme and Anne have themselves walked the Camino, and the novel is filled with details gained by their own personal experiences.
Graeme Simsion is the author of The Rosie Project, The Rosie Effect and The Best of Adam Sharp. Anne Buist is chair of Women’s Mental Health at the University of Melbourne and author of the Natalie King psychological thrillers. They live together in Melbourne.
About Two Steps Forward…
In this charming and funny story, Zoe, a recently widowed American artist, and Martin, a recently divorced British engineer, each set out alone to walk the 2,000- kilometre Camino de Santiago from France to Northern Spain hoping to make fresh starts in their lives.
It’s said the Camino changes you, but will Zoe and Martin find new versions of themselves-and is there a chance these two very different people will find each other?
Two Steps Forward is about the challenge of walking a long distance and of working out where you are going. But mostly it’s about what you choose to leave behind and what you rediscover.
Ellen DeGeneres has snapped up the movie rights in association with Fox Searchlight, and the publishing rights have been sold to several major international houses including in the US and the UK.
