Marlborough Book Festival: Elizabeth Knox in conversation with Jane Forrest Waghorn - Whitehaven Wine Room
The Guardian praised 'The Absolute Book' as "everything a fantasy should be: original, politically engaged and teeming with literary allusion”.
Elizabeth discusses her inspiration for the story, the references within to other fantasy traditions, and important messages the novel conveys about reality and the challenges of current times.
If you haven’t read the book before the session, we wager you won’t be able to resist after hearing all about it.
The 2021 Marlborough Book Festival runs from 7pm Friday 9 July through to 4.30pm Sunday 11 July with a range of author sessions on across at the weekend at the ASB Theatre, Blenheim. More info at the Marlborough Book Festival website.
