Award-winning local author Steven Lang will discuss his new book 88 Lines About 44 Women when he speaks at libraries across the Sunshine Coast in the coming months.
The eagerly awaited second book from Lang, which has been described as “complex and riveting”, gives an insight into the male psyche and its capacity for love and shame.
The book is narrated by Lawrence Martin, a sometime keyboard player in one of Australia’s most successful rock bands who enjoyed a plentiful share of fame, money and women. Two decades on, Martin is living as a virtual recluse in the north-west of Scotland, fighting memories from his turbulent past and the accident that killed his wife and ended his career.
Lang is the author of the award-wining novel An Accidental Terrorist, as well as the play A Strong Brown God, performed at the Metro Arts Theatre in Brisbane.
He has taught Creative Writing at the University of the Sunshine Coast and has a Masters in Creative Industries, specialising in writing for film.

- Maroochydore Library – 11 November at 2.30pm
