Book Launch: An Inherited Epidemic of Gilgamesh

Launch: An Inherited Epic of Gilgamesh


The Hobart Bookshop is delighted to support the launch of Graeme Hetherington‘s new book, An Inherited Epic of Gilgamesh, to be launched by Ralph Saunders.

Ralph Spaulding says of the collection:

‘Graeme Hetherington’s depiction of his relationship with his friend and mentor James McAuley is enhanced by framing it within the context of the Gilgamesh epic.. This provides an opportunity not only to describe the nature of a personal relationship in some depth but to consider broader aspects of the human condition – love, loss, loneliness, mutability and mortality. By exploring both the personal and universal so honestly and powerfully, Hetherington adds to our understanding of both his subject and himself.’
**Please note that this event will be held at the John Elliott Classics Museum at the Sandy Bay campus of the University of Tasmania, rather than in the Hobart Bookshop as our launches normally are.**
This is a free event and all are welcome.
