Caroline Brothers was born in Australia. She studied history at the University of Melbourne and at University College London and has worked as a foreign correspondent in Europe and Latin America, and as a reporter for the International Herald Tribune and the New York Times. She has contributed to the Guardian, the Independent, and the Sunday Times Magazine among others. She is the author of War and Photography, and the novel Hinterland, reissued by Bloomsbury in 2016.
Hinterland was adapted by the acclaimed Scottish theatre company Vox Motus in 2018 (entitled Flight), originally commissioned for the Edinburgh International Festival. The production subsequently ran at the McKittrick Hotel, New York, Galway International Arts Festival & Melbourne International Arts Festival. It was a New York Times critic’s pick and is listed among its ‘unforgettable theatre moments of 2018‘.
The Memory Stones is Caroline Brothers’ second novel. Beginning during the 1970s, in the dark days of what is often called Argentina’s ‘dirty war’, it tells the story of one family grappling with the reality of disappearance, and the parallel story of a young woman at war with the truth. It was published by Bloomsbury in 2016.
