A satirical picture-book for grown-ups.

Tasmanian Gothic gets a light-hearted twist in this quirky book of satirical stories in rambunctious rhyme, lavishly illustrated by Tasmanian artist Elizabeth Barsham. The self-importance of those who would advise others for cash – from the arrogant Battery Point lawyer, to the psychiatrist who sleeps through his sessions, to the financial adviser living the high life on other people’s money – is gently skewered in eight tales in which pandemonium is never far away, and luck is firmly on the side of the underdog.

Wanda Buza is a Tasmanian author, retired public servant and academic.

Elizabeth Barsham is an acclaimed Tasmanian artist. Her paintings are playful and charming, but beneath the fantasy and Gothic imagination is a sharp and ironic sense of reality.

Join Wanda and Elizabeth for the launch of The Advising Professions at the Afterword Café. The book will be officially launched by Ray Broomhall.

Tickets are $10 and include a glass of wine (or a cold drink).
