[In Progress] Fiona McFarlane, Master of Memory and Emotion (Dr. Renee Curry)

Course Description:

Dr. Renee Curry will examine two books by Australian author Fiona McFarlane. Her novel, “The Night Guest,” takes place in Australia and explores multiple layers of dementia as it manifests in memory, the imaginary, and mystery. McFarlane’s book of short stories, “The High Places,” is set in a variety of countries; each story ponders the role of emotions in charting people's life choices and journeys. McFarlane's work has won numerous literary awards, has appeared in the New Yorker, and has landed her a teaching position in Creative Writing at UC Berkeley.
