Landscape with Solitary Figure

A much-awaited new novel from one of our most beloved writers is an unnerving and timely reminder of how insidious, pernicious and strategic abusers can be when they have their victim in sight.

Shonagh Koea’s new novel, Landscape with Solitary Figure, deftly explores this complex issue and reaches to its very core. Review to follow.

 RRP: $29.99
Released: 2 May 2014
Imprint: Random House NZ (Vintage)
Available in trade paperback & e-book

And at the Auckland Writers Festival:

FRIDAY MAY 16 – 2.30-3.20PM
Michelle de Kretser, Shonagh Koea, Carl Nixon and Alice Miller read work that explores landscapes both interior and exterior, introduced by Festival founder Peter Wells.

Big news. I read her Grandiflora Tree a few years ago when it came out in that Penguin Classics series, and loved it, despite its topic (grief). For whatever reason I had it in my head she wasn't a contemporary writer.
