Life and Faith: How to Live?

Death, narcissism, and happiness were among the highlights of this year’s Sydney Writers’ Festival.

The 2015 Sydney Writers’ Festival ran from 18-24 May and offered over 300 events, with writers and speakers from all over the world. The theme was: How to Live? 

In this Life and Faith, Justine Toh and Natasha Moore discuss some of the festival highlights – including Anne Manne on narcissism, Paul Dolan and Hugh Mackay on happiness, and American mortician and death acceptance activist Caitlin Doughty, whose book Smoke Gets in Your Eyes recounts her motley experiences working in a crematorium.
