TICKLED FICTION

TICKLED FICTION

Sunday 28 August 2016, 9:30am—10:30am

New Zealand books have a reputation for being dark and gloomy, but three recent novelists blow that stereotype sky-high, using sly humour and a well-honed sense of the ridiculous. Damien Wilkins' Dad Art skewers contemporary Wellington middle class and middle age; the plot of Danyl Mclauchlan's Mysterious Mysteries of the Aro Valley comes from 'exhaustive research, painful introspection [and] old Enid Blyton novels'; and Robert Glancy's books have been called 'funny and life-affirming'.

New Zealand books have a reputation for being dark and gloomy, but three recent novelists blow that stereotype sky-high, using sly humour and a well-honed sense of the ridiculous. Damien Wilkins' Dad Art skewers contemporary Wellington middle class and middle age; the plot of Danyl Mclauchlan's Mysterious Mysteries of the Aro Valley comes from 'exhaustive research, painful introspection [and] old Enid Blyton novels'; and Robert Glancy's books have been called 'funny and life-affirming'. Learn how they lighten the mood while exposing some serious truths. Chaired by the very funny Paula Morris.
