An Isolated Incident


The Stella Interview: Emily Maguire on An Isolated Incident

In this special Stella interview Emily discusses the crime genre, the ways we deal with (and fail to deal with) violence against women, and her favourite Australian women writers.

An Isolated Incident

An Isolated Incident is a compelling story that considers the part the media plays in sensationalising crime, the plight of those whose lives are forever changed by an act of violence, and community acceptance of violence against women.
