Enjoy an in-depth conversation between editor and author as Georgia Richter and David Whish-Wilson discuss the unique editorial process they undertook for David’s latest book, The Sawdust House, which tells the story of Irish-born James ‘Yankee’ Sullivan.

About the book:

In the year 1856, James was being held in a San Francisco jail by the Committee of Vigilance, which aims to rout the Australian criminals from the town. As Sullivan’s mistress seeks his release and as his fellow prisoners are taken away to be hanged, the convict tells a story of triumph and tragedy, of his daring escape from penal servitude in Australia, how he became America’s most celebrated boxer, and how he met the true love of his life.
