Pip Adam won NZ’s biggest fiction prize, the Acorn Foundation Prize for Fiction, for her novel The New Animals. Come and hear her talk about her novel and the big prize with writer Kirsten McDougall.
About The New Animals –
Carla, Sharon and Duey have worked in fashion for longer than they care to remember. For them, there’s nothing new under the sun. They’re Generation X: tired, cynical and sick of being used.
Tommy, Cal and Kurt are millennials. They’ve come from nowhere, but with their monied families behind them they’re ready to remake fashion. They represent the new sincere, the anti-irony. Both generations are searching for a way out, an alternative to their messed-up reality.
Pip Adam’s new novel walks the streets of Auckland city now, examining the fashion scene, intergenerational tension and modern life with an unflinching eye. From the wreckage and waste of the 21st century, new animals must emerge.
