Gregory Day’s The Bell of the World

The Final Draft Great Conversations podcast is all about books, writing and literary culture. We’re dedicated to exploring Australian writing, looking into the issues that drive our storytelling to discover more from the books you love.

These are the stories that make us who we are.

Gregory Day

Gregory Day is a writer, poet and musician. His first novel, the patron Saint of Eels won the Australian Literature Society Gold Medal and his other works include Archipelago of Souls and The Grand Hotel. Of course Greg has joined us on Final Draft before with his incredible novel A Sand Archive. 

His latest is The Bell of the World

The Bell of The World

Sarah Hutchison arrives at Ngangahook adrift. She has floated from her boarding school days in England, through continental Europe to arrive on the bush property outside Geelong.

At Ngangahook Sarah is surrounded by nature and soon begins to infuse her world. In her poetry and through her music, played on a posthumanist piano modified with elements plucked from the world around her, Sarah finds a sense of self not as apart from nature but as a piece in its whole.

Sarah and her Uncle Fernny fashion Ngangahook as their own paradise, but could it also be a bastion against the fast encroaching modern world?

Final Draft is produced and presented by Andrew Pople
