Walter Mason — Sumner Locke Elliott & Careful, He Might Hear You

One of Australia’s greatest writers, Sumner Locke Elliott is little read in the 21st century, though recent re-issues of two of his novels have brought his exquisite prose to a new audience. Winner of the 1963 Miles Franklin Award, Elliott’s superb novel Careful, He Might Hear You was almost entirely autobiographical and became a part of Australia’s popular culture after the acclaimed 1984 film that was made of it.

Join author Walter Mason to discover Elliott’s fascinating story, and the influence his amazing life had on his writing.
