Former leading New Zealand publisher and bookseller, and widely experienced judge of both the Commonwealth Writers Prize and the Montana New Zealand Book Awards, talks about what he is currently reading, what impresses him and what doesn't, along with chat about the international English language book scene, and links to sites of interest to booklovers.
I love when I find a book I can share
with everyone—my parents, my friends, my book club, fellow book lovers on
social media, professional book lovers visiting my office for meetings,
every reader on my Christmas gift list. Until recently, it had been a
while since I found one of those books. And I’ve been desperately longing
for another high quality, entertaining family drama ever since finishing
Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney’s THE NEST. So just imagine how thrilled I was to
find THE ANTIQUES by Kris D’Agostino—a heartbreaking, nimble,
laugh-out-loud funny send-up of modern family life.
