I went to the Melbourne Writers' Festival today. The session included Graeme Simsion, Damon Young and Monica Dux. I could only drool when Graeme spoke about his sales figures.' The Rosie Project' is original and funny and he deserves all his sales. Damon is a philosopher who, apart from things philosophical, writes children's books.' My Nanna is a Ninja' is an intriguing title. Speaking as a nanna, it's good to see that some children's books eschew the nanna with walking stick and woolly grey hair. Monica Dux was warm, encouraging and funny, with lots of good tips for radio in particular. I enjoy her columns in The Age and was pleased to find she is as she writes.
