Moderator: Shaena Lambert

Three award-winning authors explore what happens when lines are crossed between care and control, teasing out the nuances between love and power.

What happens when the lines are crossed between care and control? Few authors explore the murkiness of the human heart with the skill and aplomb of these three, each an experts at teasing out the nuances between love and power. In Scotiabank Giller Prize winner Lynn Coady’s twisted and intoxicating Watching You Without Me, a woman’s intense relationship with her sister’s support worker slowly becomes devastating. Award-winning author Adam Foulds’ Dream Sequence is a dark and modern interrogation of the lengths one is willing to for fame and attention, while cult-favourite Andrew Kaufman returns with a surreal, tender story of a detective whose heart has been replaced with a bomb.
