COMING RAIN: STEPHEN DAISLEY

COMING RAIN: STEPHEN DAISLEY

Sunday 28 August 2016, 11:00am—12:00pm

New Zealander Stephen Daisley seemingly came from nowhere – well, Australia at least – to win the inaugural Acorn Literary Prize at the 2016 Ockham New Zealand Book Awards, though this former soldier, shearer and farmer has, in fact, been writing for decades. Now Christchurch audiences get to find out what makes this author so special. Daisley talks with Kate de Goldi about his two award-winning novels: Traitor, about New Zealanders in Gallipoli, and Coming Rain.

Now Christchurch audiences get to find out what makes this author so special. Daisley talks with Kate de Goldi about his two award-winning novels: Traitor, about New Zealanders in Gallipoli, and Coming Rain, a novel of quiet power and poetic prose, set among the shearers and dingos of Western Australia, where Daisley now lives.
