Partly a Memoir and Partly a Writer's Guide

The Secret River is book that had a big impact on its readers and in Searching for The Secret River, Kate Grenville shows us how this idea was born, where it stemmed from and how she went about writing it. It is immensely fascinating for those who read The Secret River to get more deeply involved in the themes, particularly that of the land grabbing from Aboriginal populations. The roots of the original book lay in her own ancestry, and this book explores how she used this to write a work of fiction, after she eventually decided not to produce an autobiographical work. Through analysing the specifics of her novel and its relationship with her heritage she also manages to provide valuable insights into the writing process that will be thrilling for any aspiring writers. It is rare to have such an honest glimpse into the way established authors approach their work, and she provides plenty of advice along the way.
