Red Can Origami: Madelaine Dickie

Monday 25th November / presented by Minaxi May

Last week we welcomed back author Madelaine Dickie to chat about her new novel, Red Can Origami.

A keen traveller, Madelaine's work often explores the tensions that arise as cultures clash over belief and intention. Red Can Origami follows Ava, a young journalist who relocates to Gubinge, a tiny tropical town in northern Australia after a stint in Japan. Initially enchanted, she is soon swept up in the bitter clash between a Japanese mining company and a local native title group.

Madelaine stopped by the studio to chat to Maxxi about her experience of writing this new novel, including her time spent in Japan on a residency at the beautiful Youkobo Art Space.
