Inga is the author of the best-selling novels Mr Wigg, Nest and Where the Trees Were, which has been longlisted for this year's Miles Franklin Award. I think that Inga's new memoir Understory has taken her to new heights of her craft. We have decided to use the beautiful setting of the Noosa Parks Environment Centre to celebrate the release.
"The understorey is where I live, alongside these plants and creatures. I tend the forest, stand at the foot of trees and look up, gather what has fallen."
This is the story of a tree-change, of escaping suburban Brisbane for a cottage on ten acres in search of a quiet life. Of establishing a writers retreat shortly before the Global Financial Crisis hit, and of losing just about everything when it did.
It is also the story of what the author found there: the beauty of nature and her own path as a writer. Understory is a memoir about staying in one place, told through trees.
