A breathtakingly singular voice in New Zealand fiction, Pip Adam is a genre-bending novelist who takes us to unexpected places, whether that’s via the Auckland fashion world in the award-winning The New Animals, or the AA meetings of Peggy and Greta in Nothing to See. Her latest and hotly anticipated new novel, Audition, hurtles us into space, both literally and figuratively, towards the event horizon. Part science fiction, part social realism, Audition scrutinises systems of power and has been rightfully receiving rave reviews. Chaired by Kerry Donovan Brown.

Read a terrific ANZL piece by Pip Adam on not liking theatre, scrutinising comedy and questioning realism. 

“Every now and then, you are lucky enough to come across a book so inventive, so thrillingly odd, that you struggle to stop thinking about it.” – The Guardian on Audition.
