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.

Kate's review
I loved Richard Fidler’s earlier book, Ghost Empire, about his journey to Constantinople with his son, which entwined travel-writing with history and legend in a very personable and beguiling way. I’ve also been interested in Iceland and its astonishing sagas for quite some time. So I was keen to read Saga Land from the second I heard about it.

There were no shortage of book recommendations flowing from this year's Sydney Writers' Festival (SWF). Authors, festival-goers and volunteers all had wonderful reading moments to share. We couldn't fit them all in one article, so we will spread them over three: SWF Part 1, SWF Part 2 and SWF Volunteers. Richard Fidler, Annabel Crabb and two festival-goers all share their reading and cookbook tips.

SWF – read all about it!

What a smashing few days we had at the Sydney Writers’ Festival. There was such a banquet of ideas and authors to choose from that we were spoilt for choice. This year, we interviewed Pulitzer Prize winner Jennifer Egan, Stella Prize winner Charlotte Wood, the inimitable Richard Fidler, the amazing Annabel Crabb, Australia’s Sophie Green and Wales’ own Emma Glass.
