This is the booklaunch for our newest short story collection: Hailman by Leanne Radojkovich. The event will be hosted by publisher Emma Wright, and it will feature a reading and Q&A. The event will take place at 9pm UK time, because of the author’s timezine.
The book’s blurb: What to do when the past crashes into the present? It can happen anywhere: in carports and kitchens – on stairwells – at the airport. Set in Aotearoa New Zealand’s small towns and cities, these ten stories by Leanne Radojkovich dissect moments where the protagonists are confronted with truth and must decide whether to stand, fall or run.
Leanne Radojkovich’s writing is full of crisp, precise details, and often contains a sting. In Hailman, the follow-up to her 2017 debut First fox, the stories still have a dreamy, mythic feel, but are now rooted more firmly in the dusty suburbs and countryside of Aotearoa.
