Paul Dalgarno’s A Country of Eternal Light, Rijn Collins’ Fed to Red Birds, and Gina Perry’s My Father the Whale all share themes of love, loss, beauty and grief, and centre around family secrets. They also share in common a narrative arc in which the mother figures appear in varying degrees of absence.
They speak with author and podcaster, Irma Gold, about the themes in their novels and the personal and familial secrets and taboos that propel their stories.
