It’s official: Catherine Chidgey’s The Wish Child is the best novel in New Zealand this year.

Her story, set in World War II Germany, won big at the 2017 Ockhams, and now she’s released her experimental new novel, The Beat of the Pendulum. She created it by writing down a snippet of heard dialogue every day - from TV, family discussions, and a touch of eavesdropping.

Hear how she pulled it off, in conversation with Jacquetta Bell.

Part of the Page & Blackmore Readers and Writers programme.

Hear more for less with two special offers: 5 for $50 or 10 for $90 (plus TicketDirect service fee). Excludes the Thinking Brunches. Choose the five or ten talks you wish to attend at a discounted price. Offers can be used for a group booking. These special offers are only available from Theatre Royal Nelson.

Come early to order coffee - when the talking begins the machine is turned off!

Continue the conversation at 10am on both Tuesdays after the weekend sessions, with discussion groups at Nelson’s Elma Turner Library.
