New CK Stead novel launched at Unity Wellington
C.K. Stead’s latest book Risk was launched at Unity Books Wellington last Monday to an eager crowd of fans, friends and family. The evening started with a round of happy birthday to celebrate young Mr Stead’s 80-year innings of a few weeks back. His newest book focuses on recently divorced Sam, a New Zealand lawyer and his return to London. It’s a blend of political adventure and financial thriller set in times of life-shattering uncertainty, but still a story with a recognizably kiwi Kiwi in the midst of it all.
This aspect was one stylishly-toasted by Lorraine Steel in her launch speech.
The author also commented that it was the first sunny day he had seen in Wellington for some time.
