Long ago, Jimmy Reubens was a POW on the Thai-Burma Railway. For more than four decades, he has staved off the ghosts of his past by drinking too much, outstaying his welcome at his local RSL, and bickering with his three closest mates. But the past won’t stay buried forever.

Join Mark Dapin as he talks to Catharine Lumby about his latest novel, Spirit House, a funny, wise, disturbing and deeply moving story by the award-winning author of King of the Cross.

Presented with Randwick City Library Service.
