Literature Lessons: Peter Temple

Reading Peter Temple is to unravel fiction that climbs over fences of genre. Temple’s text is fast-paced, brutal, radical. His writing hums with tension. His characterisation ascends physical
traits and the reader promptly understands ‘who is ice or heat or fragile or solid’. Join this Literature Lesson hosted by Eugen Bacon – a bold, immersive writer who adores breaking the norms of traditional writing. Discover Peter Temple in the fascinating light of crossover narrative.


  • When: Wednesday 27 March, 6.30–7.30pm
  • Where: The Wheeler Centre, 176 Little Lonsdale St, Melbourne
  • With: Eugen Bacon
