AUTHORS ON TOUR: Richard Flanagan
Author of The Narrow Road to the Deep North

Richard Flanagan is the winner of the 2014 Man Booker Prize for his novel The Narrow Road to the Deep North. Called “devastatingly beautiful” by the London Times, the novel traces the life of 77-year-old, Australian surgeon Dorrigo Evans from his prisoner of war experiences on the Thailand-Burma Railway during World War II through his life in contemporary Australia. Flanagan was inspired by his father’s experiences in these Japanese POW camps that became known as the “Death Railway.”
