In partnership with the Kill Your Darlings First Book Club, Luke Horton will discuss his debut novel The Fogging with host Ellen Cregan. For ages 17+.

‘Like a brewing storm on an oppressive summer day, The Fogging is quiet but assured, building towards the thunderclap of its final pages.’ – Jennifer Down

Tom and Clara are two struggling academics in their mid-thirties, who decide to take their first holiday in ten years.  At the resort in Indonesia they meet Madeleine and her partner Jeremy, and the two couples strike up an easy friendship. But when Clara and Madeleine become trapped in the maze-like grounds of the hotel during ‘the fogging’ — a routine spraying of pesticide — the dynamics suddenly shift between Tom and Clara, and the atmosphere of the holiday darkens.

Told with equal parts compassion and irony, and brimming with observations that charm, illuminate, and devastate, The Fogging dives deep into what it means to be strong when your foundation is built on sand.

Luke Horton’s writing has appeared in The GuardianThe Saturday Paper, and The Australian. The former editor of The Lifted Brow, he currently teaches creative writing at RMIT, and is a member of acclaimed indie-rock band Love of Diagrams. The Fogging is his debut novel, and was highly commended for the Victorian Premier’s Award for an Unpublished Manuscript in 2019.

Established in 2014, the Kill Your Darlings First Book Club partners with local publishers to each month promote a debut book of fiction or non-fiction that KYD is gunning for everyone to read!

Through a series of events, online content, podcast coverage and profiles, the KYD First Book Club encourages wide-ranging and long-lasting conversations about these authors and their books both on and off the screen.

Registrations required. Email contact will be made prior to event start with event details.
