Who gets noticed? Who gets ignored? Pip Adam and Jacqueline Bublitz discuss their compelling and provocative novels, which defy fiction tropes.

Peggy and Greta, the two women at the centre of Pip Adam's uncanny novel, Nothing to See, seem on the brink of disappearing altogether but it is not just another novel about two alcoholics trying to sober up.

Alice and Ruby, the two women at the centre of Jacqueline Bublitz's stunning debut, Before You Knew My Name, form an unusual bond—one living, one somewhere beyond—but it is not just another novel about a dead girl.

Both stories explore how power structures impact on the lives of women without voices. Chaired by Kerry Sunderland.
