From the outside, the Delaneys appear to be an enviably contented family. Now that Joy and Stan have sold the family business they have all the time in the world to learn how to 'relax'. Their four adult children are busy living their own lives, and while it could be argued they never quite achieved their destinies, no-one ever says that out loud.

But now Joy Delaney has disappeared and her children are re-examining their parents' marriage and their family history with fresh, frightened eyes. Were things ever as rosy as they seemed in the Delaney household?

She's a global sensation - the bestselling Australian author of ten engaging novels including Big Little Lies and Nine Perfect Strangers, both of which attracted Nicole Kidman's interest and have been made into smash-hit television series. Liane Moriarty has sold more than 20 million copies of her books, the latest of which is Apples Never Fall. It's a witty and substantive study of family dynamics, as well as a mystery revealed in snippets and whispers, bearing all the hallmarks of her deft skills as an observer and a storyteller. Sydneysider Moriarty, who is the eldest of six siblings, joins us in person for a lively hour canvassing her stellar career, the stories that inspire her stories, and the neverending fascinations of contemporary human behaviour. In conversation with Mich?le A'Court.
