Cookin' on 3 Burners and Margaret Urlich.

By the Book welcomes award-winning author and AFI-winning screenwriter, Phillip Gwynne, to the programme. Gwynne's latest Young Adult fiction novel, The Break from Penguin Books, is an edge-of-your-seat thriller set in the tropics of Bali and East Timor. In this fascinating chat, Brydie Wright gets to the nitty gritty of the complexities underlying Indonesian society and culture - Gwynne talks his personal experiences visiting the Bali 9 in Kerobokan, the identity crisis of 'third culture kids' of expats, and the little known generation of stolen East Timorese children.
