Word of Mouth TV's Kate Forsyth reviews five books to help tide our friends and viewers over during lockdown. It includes a range of genres to cater for different tastes so hopefully there is something for everyone. This is the first of several we hope to serve up over the next few months. Filmed on the iphone, it's a bit of experiment, and we will be tampering with presentation as we perfect this. It's 30 minutes so long, so you can dip into it at your leisure and maybe listen to one or two at a time. Or if you find yourself in desperate need of literary contact, the whole damn lot! Enjoy!!
Word of Mouth TV tags along for the Boz in Oz conference and discovers Charles Dickens’ great association with Australia. Of course, few authors conjure Christmas more readily than Dickens. Join us as we explore the mystery of the Dickens statue in Sydney’s Centennial Park, and interview some of Australia’s leading authorities on Dickens before gathering for a Dickensian feast at the beautiful historic Vaucluse House. As author of the classic Christmas novel The Christmas Carol, our Boz in Oz special seemed the perfect choice to celebrate the Christmas season. Enjoy!
Join us as we interview Christine Wells about her spy thriller romance The Juliet Code set in World War II France. Female spies have always held an exotic fascination for readers - think Mata Hari, Australia's Nancy Wake or Marvel's fictional Black Widow. Perhaps this fascination emerges from the sharp contrast between the courage involved and the relative physical frailty and social vulnerability of women. On so many counts, the female is outmatched - except for her intelligence and wit of course. And her main ally is the fact that she is constantly underestimated.
