Meet the Author - Joel Margarey

Meet Joel Margarey, author of Exposure: a journey

Kew Library
Tuesday February 16 at 7.30pm.

Joel Magarey’s first book, Exposure: a Journey documents the time when as a young journalist Joel abandoned his career & partner of seven years to set off on a long-imagined global odyssey through half-frozen Alaskan rivers, Bolivian tent fires & an Ecuadorean sexual paradise.

This is also the tale of Joel’s battle with his harrowing obsessive compulsive disorder, which emerged unpredictably to haunt his adventures & loves. At once travel tale, love story & tragic comedy, Exposure is about wanting too much, choosing too little & how a person can spend three weeks solid in Los Angeles buying a sleeping bag.

Local author Joel Magarey has been published in Australia’s best literary magazines, been awarded an Australia-Council funded Emerging Writers Mentorship & has been described by bestselling author Michael McGirr as offering ‘a truly original voice for the human condition’.
