Lloyd Jones: In Conversation

31 August 2018 | WORD Christchurch Festival

Lloyd Jones is one of New Zealand’s most internationally successful contemporary writers, perhaps best known for the Booker Prize-shortlisted Mister Pip and his lyrical take on the All Blacks’ 1905 international tour, The Book of Fame. Constantly pushing boundaries, and never one to shy away from difficult subjects, he is back with his first novel in seven years, The Cage, a powerful allegorical tale about humanity and dignity and the ease with which we can justify brutality. Lloyd appears in a wide-ranging discussion with broadcaster John Campbell about his work, the topics that draw him in and what pushes his storytelling buttons.
