Interview at Bunjil Place Library

Scott Pearce spoke about his debut novel, faded yellow by the winter, in a conversation we held at Bunjil Place Library in Narre Warren. During the conversation he outlined his process as a writer and his methods of developing a narrative and characterisation.

He also spoke about his conflicted pleasures in enjoying Australian Rules football, his engagement with the mythology of the game, toxic masculinity and the meanings of footy clubs to small towns.

Thank you to Sam Benton of Bunjil Place for facilitating the event.

The book is available for order, here.

Soto Ayam
Soto Ayam: aku makan ini tiga hari setelah Ibuku meninggal pada tanggal 9 Juli 2019.

Aku ingin tahu apa yang didapatkan burung elang itu di rerumputan

Apa yang dimakannya hidup-hidup

Rumput panjang dimana Fogarty, Sandy dan Currie berjalan

Cemerlang dalam hal tulang belulang, tangan bumerang

‘Kau yang terakhir yang kami harapkan untuk melakukan ini’

Aku tidak tahu bagaimana perasaanku, kecuali terhadap gunung-gunung

Dan jika mereka membawa artefak-artefak itu kembali

Apakah mereka akan dipulihkan?
