Holly Throsby in Conversation with Philip


Last week, Holly Throsby returned to Brays to discuss the release of her debut novel, Goodwood.

In front of an intimate crowd, Philip and Holly reminisced about Holly’s earliest visits to the bookshop in the arms of her mother, Margaret. Her stories about growing up in Balmain struck a chord with many in the very appreciative hometown audience.

According to Holly, her transition from songwriter to novelist was greatly helped by Stephen King’s, On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft.

Holly went on to fill in some of the background details surrounding her new book, assuring everyone there, that the only character in her book based on a real one, was the dog!

Signed copies of Goodwood are available at Brays until stocks last. $29.99

Also in stock is King’s,  On Writing for $19.99
