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.
One of the best things about working in
publishing is the number of times you get to talk about a book you love.
When the book is acquired, when it’s in galleys (those early copies you
see all over #bookstagram), when the book is published, and even just on
an ordinary day when you see it on a bookstore shelf or someone’s living
room table. There are plenty of opportunities to rave, so I’m taking this
one to tell you about one of my favorite books of the past year, Jason
Rekulak’s THE IMPOSSIBLE FORTRESS.
