All are welcome to the launch of this excellent new book by Kirsten McDougal, held at Thistle Hall, 293 Cuba Street, Saturday the 18th of August at 4pm. Published by Victoria University Press.
Come by and have a drink and some nibbles and hear Elizabeth Knox extol The Invisible Rider‘s virtues as we launch this new novel into the world.
This delightful collection of linked short stories focuses on Philip Fetch, a lawyer with an office in a suburban shopping mall who feels increasingly out of step with his society and neighbours. At once surreal and whimsical, and fired by a quietly burning moral engagement, The Invisible Rider is an antipodean cousin of Calvino’s Marcovaldo.
