After a messy break up writer Janice wants to find a new home for her beloved fridge before she takes up an arts fellowship in Antarctica. Janice may be on the brink of success, but her chaotic personality puts everything at risk. That's the bare bones of Anne Kennedy's novel - The Ice Shelf. The award winning poet, novelist, teacher, editor and scriptwriter offers a satirical perspective of the arts and writing, while at the same time drawing our attention to the very serious issue of climate change. Anne Kennedy talks to Lynn Freeman about The Ice Shelf, published by Victoria University Press.
