More about Dr Howard Goldenberg
Howard Goldenberg is a doctor, writer, marathon runner and Olympic torch bearer. He has written two non-fiction books, My Father’s Compass (2007) and Raft (2009). Both non-fiction books were released to great acclaim. Howard has featured as a presenter at the Melbourne Writer’s Festival 2009, in The Australian, and interviewed by Phillip Adams on Late Night Live.

Howard has just released his first novel Carrots and Jaffas, the story of two red-headed identical twins, set in Melbourne and the Flinders Ranges. Through the story the reader encounters the twins’ parents – the emotional, scripture-quoting Luisa and the calm Bernard – as well as two remarkable storytellers, Doc, an eccentric outback doctor and Greta, an Aboriginal elder. Trauma is followed by recovery through the unexpected agency of story and ‘country’ (in the Australian Aboriginal meaning of that term).
