Bestselling author Liane Moriarty at Marrickville Town Hall

No. 1 New York Times bestselling author Liane Moriarty is discussing her latest novel Truly Madly Guilty at Marrickville Town Hall on Wednesday 2 November.

The author of six bestselling novels, including What Alice Forgot, The Husband's Secret and Big Little Lies, Liane’s books have been read by more than six million people worldwide.

Her latest book, Truly Madly Guilty centres on six responsible adults, three cute kids and one playful dog. It’s an ordinary weekend in the suburbs – what could possibly go wrong? Marriage, sex, parenthood and friendship: Liane Moriarty takes these elements of our lives and shows us how guilt can expose the fault lines in any relationship, and it is not until we appreciate the fragility of life that we can truly value what we have.

Liane’s Big Little Lies reached number one on the New York Times bestseller list in its first week of publication, the first time this had been achieved by an Australian author. It was also number one on the Australian fiction charts and is has been adapted for television by HBO, starring Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon.

Additionally, The Husband's Secret has sold over three million copies worldwide, was a number one UK bestseller, an Amazon Best Book of 2013 and is set to be translated into over 40 languages. CBS Films has acquired the film rights. What Alice Forgot has also been acquired and will be adapted to film by Sony TriStar, with Jennifer Aniston starring as Alice.

About the author
Liane lives in Sydney with her husband, son and daughter and is a full-time author. She has sold over six million copies of her books worldwide and her novels have been translated into thirty-nine languages. When she’s not writing she can be found reading, demanding coffee, clutching her forehead and occasionally falling to her knees on the soccer field sidelines (the grief, the joy, the drama!) demanding chocolate, skiing like she’s thirty years younger than she is, recovering from skiing injuries, doing the school run, walking around the block to avoid writer’s block, talking to old friends about getting old, listening to her children explain the wonders of Minecraft, watching TV series far too late into the night, and of course, reading.
