Portrait of a recipe
We caught up with Richard Fidler at the 2018 Sydney Writer's Festival to talk about his latest book Saga Land, which he co-authored with his dear friend Kari Gislason. In it, he included a recipe for Icelandic fish soup because, says Richard, "wherever you go in Iceland ... they tend to have these little cafes ... that only have about four or five things on the menu ... and nearly every one of them had Icelandic fish soup.

Wow! What a fabulous few days we’ve had at the Sydney Writers Festival. The Carriageworks is a great venue – plenty of space, groovy eateries and bars, and wonderful lounges to relax after author sessions. And what a fabulous line-up of authors. It has a great central hub that makes it easy for people to mingle and meet, and watch the authors zooming through to their next appearance.

Hello ladies!

Welcome ladies to Word of Mouth TV. We say “ladies” because statistics tell us that the vast majority of bibliophiles are women. Women buy more books than men, attend more book clubs, use libraries more often, write more than men, and attend more creative writing courses than men. Heaps more! Having said that, we expect that the literary banquet we serve this year will feed the souls of both sexes.

How it all began

Kate and I are the best and oldest of friends. We first met fresh out of university at an industrial psychology test in the most inauspicious of circumstances. We were being pitted against each other for the plum job of journalist at Fairfax Media, the owner of such illustrious mastheads as The Sydney Morning Herald, The Sun Herald and The Age.

Sarah's review
What’s not to like? Two Steps Forward is a light-hearted, romantic romp across the world-heritage-listed Camino; a pilgrim’s path that crosses France and Spain. The characters do all the hard work: the walking (a mere 2,000 kilometres), the socialising (200,000 pilgrims attempt the trail each year), and the soul-searching (who doesn’t have problems); while you sit back and enjoy the journey.
