A dazzling, funny, and unforgettable tale, The Work explores the biggest intersections of life: of art and commerce, of intimacy and distance, of talent and entitlement, and of labour and privilege. It is an epic and forensic exploration of modern love and passion, politics and power.  

Bri Lee is the multi-award-winning author of Eggshell Skull, Beauty, and Who Gets to Be Smart. Her journalism, essays, and short stories have been published widely, and she is the creator and editor of News & Reviews

Sophie Tedmanson is the Editor of The Australia Women's Weekly. She is a Communications and Media strategist with over three decades of experience in storytelling for arts institutions such as the National Gallery, and the Australian Museum, and for print and digital publications including The Times in London and Vogue Australia.  

Skip the queue and prepurchase your copy of The Work  when booking your ticket. Orders will be available for collection at the venue from the team at Gertrude & Alice Bookstore pop-up.  Bri Lee will be signing copies of The Work after the talk.

“This novel isn't just good; it's superb. Assured, and powerful, and intelligent, and very, VERY hard to put down. I consumed it in a passion." – Annabel Crabb
