The Life to Come?

I saw in the news tonight that Michelle de Kretser had won the Miles Franklin Literary Award for her novel The Life to Come.
Michelle de Kretser, Ceridwen Dovey and Caroline Baum at the 2018 BWF
I caught half of the 'Revelations' talk that Michelle de Kretser, Ceridwen Dovey and Caroline Baum took part in, before I had to head off to catch Micheline Jenner's talk 'The Secret Life of Whales'.
You can now hear that talk by clicking on the link below -

I would have liked to have stayed to hear all of the 'Revelations' talk that Michelle de Kretser took part in, but such is life at a writers festival when six talks are going on all at once and you don't know which life to choose between.
The Secret Life of Blue Whales?
Congratulations Michelle on the Miles Franklin Award.
To life ... or should I say to 'The Life to Come'?-)
