Andrea Goldsmith – Invented Lives

29 April @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

In the mid 1980s, 24 year old Galina Kogan leaves Leningrad – forbidden ever to return. As a Jew, she’s inherited several generations’ worth of Russia’s chronic anti-Semitism. As a Soviet citizen, she is unprepared for Australia and its easygoing ways. Andrea Goldsmith’s first novel, Gracious Living, was published in 1989. This was followed by Modern Interiors, Facing the Music, Under the Knife, and The Prosperous Thief, which was shortlisted for the 2003 Miles Franklin Literary Award. Reunion was published in 2009, and The Memory Trap was awarded the 2015 Melbourne Prize. Invented Lives tells a story of love and exile – exile from country, exile at home, and exile from one’s true self.
