Blog Tour: Razorhurst by Justine Larbalestier
We’re super excited to have Larbalestier on our blog today, and not at all because she threatened us with a razor and said she was going to cut us. (Please help us). You may have seen Larbalestier’s awesome activism on Twitter, or read one of her previous books like Liar or Team Human. Today we’ll be talking about her new book, Razorhurst. Set in 1930’s Sydney Australia amongst the bloody gang wars. With limited guns available, gang members turn their prowess for violence towards the razor blades. It’s a bloody, beautiful novel.
Q: The setting of the novel is 1930’s Sydney Australia, in the grip of mob warfare. This beautiful novel has such a unique viewpoint. How much of it is historically accurate? To what degree are the characters like Gloriana Nelson and Davidson, and the setting of Razorhurst real?
A: Thank you. So pleased you like it.
