Some of Australia’s most accomplished writers discuss place and setting in fiction, drawing on their latest works. The ABC’s Michaela Kalowski talks to Eliza Henry-Jones, whose Ache sees a rural community recover from a devastating bushfire; Di Morrissey, whose A Distant Journey places her protagonist on an isolated sheep station in the Riverina in NSW; Sandra Leigh Price, whose The River Sings is set in 1825 in London and Australia,  and Michael Sala, whose The Restorer exquisitely captures the Newcastle coastline.
