Book Reading

New Edition Bookshop and UWA Publishing invite you to a special reading by Richard Rossiter of his recently released novella THICKER THAN WATER.

Please join us for this literary occasion in store on Tuesday 14 April 2015 at 6.30pm (for a 7pm start). Wine and nibbles supplied, everyone welcome.




Marie D’Anger returns to the family home in south-west Australia after years of living in England, to a father whose destructive impulses have been curbed by a stroke, and a mother whose passivity she never understood.

Behind her is Edy Baudin and the deep love they shared before he left, suddenly and without explanation. Further back still is her father and his fraught relationships with his mother, brother and step-father. But when Edy follows Marie to Australia, her father’s shocking revelation brings hidden things to the surface.

This is quintessential Rossiter: an intense, poetic, family drama and psychological tragedy.
