Attend a Q&A with Lloyd Jonesby The Listener
The Listener, Penguin Books, and the NZ Book Council invite you to attend a Q&A with Lloyd Jones.
Superbly written, A History of Silence is an extraordinary work from one of New Zealand’s master storytellers. It uncovers Jones’s past … revealing stories he never expected to find. The 2011 earthquake that shook Christchurch to its core led Jones to investigate his own foundations and family history. And so begins a quest to revisit what has been buried by a legacy of silence.
Jones is one of New Zealand’s best known contemporary writers. His works include Biografi, a New York Times Notable Book, and the novels The Book of Fame – winner of numerous literary awards – Choo Woo, Here at the End of the World We Learn to Dance, Paint Your Wife, Hand Me Down World and the phenomenally successful Mister Pip, winner of the 2007 Commonwealth Writers’ Prize, the Montana Medal for Fiction and the Kiriyama Writers’ Prize, shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize and adapted into a film, which goes on general release on October 3.
