“Working with Paspaley has been one of the most exciting writing experiences I’ve had. To have total creative freedom, a time limit and an audience turn out to be the perfect conditions for writing a short story. And the idea that a company which makes things of great beauty and value from nature values literature, which (on a good day) is also something of beauty and value that reflects the world around us, was inspiring. Writing this story has been a joy and a privilege, and was some of the most fun I’ve ever had writing.”
Anna Funder is one of Australia’s most acclaimed and awarded writers. Her novel ‘All That I Am’ won the Miles Franklin Prize in 2012, along with seven other literary awards. Anna’s ‘Stasiland’ hailed as “a classic”, won the 2004 Samuel Johnson Prize. Both books have been international bestsellers and are published in 20 countries.
Anna lives with her husband and three children in New York City.
“I was drawn in by the integrity of the project and by the very modern story itself. Plus it’s not everyday you get to act in a book!”
