Author Talk: Attraction by Ruby Porter

Ruby will be in conversation with Cait Kneller, talking about her debut novel.

Attraction (the first recipient of the Michael Gifkins prize), follows three young women on a road trip through Auckland, Levin and Whāngārā.

An examination of the female experience, friendship, male jealousy and the legacy of family and colonialism, Attraction reckons with New Zealand's colonialist history and the abusive ghosts of love and familial past.

This is our August Lit Reads title. See more here.
