to an event
writer, broadcaster and journalist Ramona Koval in conversation with Arnold Zable, Cafe Scherazade, Fig Tree.
Bloodhound is an intriguing investigation of family history. Ramona's parents were Holocaust survivors who fled their homeland and settle in Melbourne. A quest for identity recounted with Koval’s customary humour, Bloodhound takes hold of the reader andnever lets go. It is a moving story of the terrible cost of war and of family secrets.This evening will be of huge interest to students, families, biographers and book club members
