FUGITIVE WITH SIMON
In 1917, a young composer writes a suite of twenty pieces for
piano. They are short, violent and strange, the music of another
world. In 1938, a young Jewish family flees Italy for Sydney,
Australia. In 1942, a Polish family are nearly destroyed. Half a
century later, a young man begins to understand the role these
strange visions have played in everything that came before him
and all that has come to be.
Join Simon Tedeschi for an intimate conversation about his
debut work, 'Fugitive', a book that oscillates between poetry
and prose, fiction and fact, trauma and testimony.
Known primarily as a concert pianist, Simon Tedeschi has
written for publications across Australia. When neither writing
nor practising, he reads books and drinks coffee. He and his
wife, the visual artist Loribelle Spirovski, live in Sydney,
Australia with their cat. 'Fugitive' is his first book.
