The Truth Within Fiction

September 30, 2023 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm

Sue McCauley burst onto the literary scene in New Zealand in 1982 with her best-selling debut novel, Other Halves. This novel won awards and was made into a movie for which Sue wrote the script. She has written several other novels and has also been a journalist, playwright, screenwriter, competition judge and champion to emerging authors. With her latest novel, Landed, the first in decades, Sue continues to delight.

Patricia Grace says of it: Such good explorative writing: wit, clarity, images sharp and fresh. As a reader, I am in safe hands with Sue McCauley. All of Sue’s novels deal with modern social attitudes and relationships. Many people will empathise with Landed’s protagonist, Briar, as she is faced with navigating a new world on her own. It is the late 1980s, and attitudes, values and the means of communication are rapidly changing. Although the setting takes place over thirty years ago, the story is just as relevant today.

Sue will chat with Mary-Ann Ewing about her latest work, and more.
