An intimate showcase of exciting new must-reads that delve into the transformative power of art, and how it shapes authors and readers alike.
Praised by Quill and Quire as one of “CanLit’s most innovative chameleons,” bestselling author Anosh Irani (Translated from the Gibberish) joins three dazzling talents to share their new work. Winner of New Zealand’s 2018 Michael Gifkins Prize, Ruby Porter’s atmospheric debut, Attraction, follows three women on a road trip, navigating the North Island and their relationships with one another. Marina Endicott’s The Difference, a breathtaking sea voyage across the South Pacific in 1912, explores the notion of this word—between people, continents, cultures and species, while bestselling author Steven Price pulls readers into the mind of Giuseppe Tomasi, a dying prince, in the exquisite Lampedusa. This intimate showcase of must-reads delves into the transformative power of art, and how it shapes authors and readers alike.
