Marion Halligan AM is one of Australia’s most important writers, with a long list of literary prizes to her credit. She has served as chairperson of the Literature Board of the Australia Council and the Australian National Word Festival.
Marion’s book The Point is about a fictitious local restaurant. It is a novel of intricate complexity and wit about our appetites and desires and the way they irrevocably shape the world.
The taste of memory is a delightful, witty, humorous and serious book about the way we live now, as expressed in our relationship with food and gardens. And it celebrates the great oral tradition of cooks throughout time who pass on recipes out of the love of friends and food.
