The search for true home - Garry Disher

Ep. 47
An interview with Garry Disher has been on my Wishlist for so long so I am thrilled I got the chance to speak to him. Garry has written more than 50 books across different genres but he’s best known for his searing crime fiction. Garry was writing crime set in Australia for decades, long before rural or outback noir became popular or had the status that it does now. My entry into Garry’s writing was the brilliant Bitter Wash Road, which introduced us to his character Constable Paul Hirschausen, a cop exiled to a rural community where he’s an outsider. There’s three books in the Hirsch series and Garry’s currently working on the next one. His new book The Way it is Now introduces us to cop Charlie Deravin who is back in his coastal country hometown where the mystery of his mother’s disappearance 20 years before still hangs heavily.The Way it is Now is published by Text Publishing.

“Farmers aren’t two-dimensional, they are complex and interesting”: Richard Anderson

Ep. 42
Australian author Richard Anderson is a second-generation farmer in Northern New South Wales where he and his wife run a beef cattle farm. Richard’s books are rural noir and authentically so because of his lived experience on the land. Richard says writing about crime allows him to “articulate my condition, to talk about my life without going on about how hard it is to be a farmer”.I read Richard’s second crime novel, Boxed, which has one of the most inventive ways to dispose of a body that I’ve ever read. Boxed synopsisDave Martin is down on his luck: his wife has left him; his farm is a failure; his house is a mess; he has withdrawn from his community and friends; and tragedy has stolen his capacity to care. He passes the time drinking too much and buying cheap tools online, treating the delivered parcels as gifts from people who care about him.And then boxes begin to arrive in the mail: boxes that he didn’t order, but ones that everyone around him seems to want desperately. As he tries to find out the secret of the boxes, Dave is drawn into a crazy world of red herrings and wrong turns, good guys and bad, false friends and true, violence, lust, fear, revenge, and a lot, lot more. It’s not a world he understands, but is it the only one Dave can live in?Your host is Emily WebbFollow Emily on Twitter https://twitter.com/emilybwebbInstagram https://instagram.com/emilywebbcrimeTikTok: https://www.tiktok.com/@emilywebbcrimeFacebook facebook.com/emily.webb.podcaster.authorWebsite: https://www.emilywebbcrime.com/Emily is the author of Angels of Death: Doctors and Nurses Who Kill http://clandestinepress.net/products/angels-of-deathThanks to this week’s guest Richard Anderson.
