Read with Murray: The New Ships by Kate Duigan

Charlotte Grimshaw.jpg

"A beguiling portrait of loss and memory and attempts to understand one's life following the death of a partner.

Peter Collie, a successful lawyer in post 9/11 Wellington, finds himself recalling a love affair and a child from his OE in 70's Amsterdam. Blood ties that transcend borders and all usual boundaries are forced into awareness as Peter, Moira and son Aaron must confront moral choices. As always, is the need to act or not – and as always, many of the consequences are vague and somewhat shifty."

“…intellectually true and morally right.” - Emily Perkins
