Kate Jennings, Australian poet and writer, made her home in New York four decades ago, from where she has charted her age from a liberal and feminist perspective. Her novel Moral Hazard dramatised the perils of Wall Street years before the global crash of 2008; her recently released Trouble offers her best writing over four decades. Never quite with the mainstream, Jennings has taken the lead in contemporary debates and sometimes paid for it. Kate Jennings returned to The Sydney Institute on Tuesday 3 August 2010 to consider some of the highlights of her career as an outsider.
