Do Oysters Get Bored? A curious life


Rozanna Lilley In Conversation with Karen Middleton

A baby cries; a mother exits, leaving her family behind; a child finally begins to talk; a father stops breathing. In her new book, Do Oysters Get Bored? A Curious Life, Rozanna Lilley writes about raising a son with autism and her relationship with her father, the poet Merv Lilley. She also writes candidly and passionately about her mother, the celebrated playwright Dorothy Hewett, who remains an enduring presence. Join Chief Political Correspondent for The Saturday Paper and successful author, Karen Middleton as she explores the poetry and prose of a woman reflecting on her child's special journey and the effect of her own upbringing on her life now in middle age.
