Writers on Mondays: From Wellington to the world - Kate Duignan and Rajorshi Chakraborti
Damien Wilkins in discussion with the authors of two recent novels that look out from Wellington to the wider world.
Kate Duignan's new novel The New Ships is set in Wellington after the fall of the Twin Towers, and traverses London, Europe and the Indian subcontinent. In Rajorshi Chakraborti's fifth novel The Man Who Would Not See a man travels from small-town India to Wellington with the apparent objective of blowing up every part of his younger brother's life. These novels have their feet in Wellington but spread their stories out into the world. Join Damien Wilkins in a discussion with these writers about writing from Wellington to the world.
