An Evening with Ramona Koval @Eumundi School of Arts
Around 50 people enyoyed a literary night at the Eumundi School of the Arts to hear Ramona Koval.
We had the pleasure of being amongst them.
We did arrive a little late, so only caught the tail end of the other interviewee of the night, award winning author Krissy Kneen, but going on the reading she did to finish..... if you like to have your boundaries pushed and face-up to a little confrontation then you will certainly enjoy her style of writing.
As any listener to Ramona's in depth interviews with writers when she presented on the ABC’s Radio National will attest, Ramona has an ability to captivate with her words. It was fascinating to hear her on the other side of the microphone.
Ramona tells a fascinating story of the search for her identity in particular focussing on her father, or as she says, maybe her father.
Bloodhound tells the story of the importance of family stories , family history and knowing your origins. Having these things absent in her own life Ramona tells of an investigation ranging from Poland during the Holocaust through to chance meetings with a man who may also have been her father and a whole cast of characters in between. It sounds a fascinating tale and if the writing style reflects Ramona’s speaking, then it will be interspersed with good doses of humour and heart-tugging moments.
We will certainly be reading Bloodhound by Ramona Koval.
Bloodhound is Available at Berkelouw's Eumundi Bookshop & Cafe
