As war is waged in the Middle East, a woman in New Zealand has her nose in a book. Kate is immersed in other battles, engrossed in eyewitness accounts of an earlier war in ancient Persia. She has grown up, left her Otago home and returned, and in all these years books have shaped her life and made sense of the world - offering mystery and solace, entertainment and enlightenment. In an evocative and moving mix of memoir and fiction, award-winning novelist Fiona Farrell writes of life from The Little Red Hen to Owls Do Cry, from T.S. Eliot to Aphra Behn. Frequently funny, always original, Book Book is another extraordinary offering from the author of The Hopeful Traveller.
Born in Oamaru and educated at Otago and Toronto, Fiona Farrell has been writing since the 1980s. To date she has published two books of poetry, two collections of short stories and three novels. Her novel The Skinny Louie Book won the New Zealand Book Award for Fiction in 1992, and she has won many other awards, including the Bruce Mason Award for Playwrights and the Katherine Mansfield Fellowship in Menton.
