Take Home Reading is a new short-form audio series for readers and writers – shining a spotlight on Australian writers with recently released books. In each instalment, you’ll be introduced to a writer, learn a little about what they’ve been reading lately, and hear a short reading from their latest work.

In this episode, Stella Charls speaks with Mirandi Riwoe about her novel, Stone Sky Gold Mountain. It's a heartbreaking and universal story about the exiled and displaced; about those who encounter discrimination, yet yearn for acceptance. 

‘I don’t believe in being prescient by giving [characters] thoughts and actions that would have been totally out of place, but I think there is a place for bringing the story … closer to what it actually probably was. […] Fiction is handy; you’re building up empathy for these characters that are representative of actual people, and what they actually did think.’

Stone Sky Gold Mountain is out now through UQP.


A PDF transcript of this interview will be available soon.
