Event description
Irish author Liz Nugent and Dunedin's own Vanda Symon discuss the appeal of their respective crime genres.

About this Event

This session brings together two acclaimed crime writers working in very different genres.

Dubliner Liz Nugent has been called ‘the finest psychological thriller writer currently at work’, serving up chilling portraits of psychopaths in dark, Gothic novels like Lying in Wait, Unravelling Oliver and Skin Deep.

Dunedin’s own Vanda Symon, by contrast, is a skilled exponent of the police procedural, pitting her gutsy heroine, Detective Constable Sam Shephard, against villains of various stripes in novels like Overkill and The Ringmaster.

Sonja Tiernan, herself a Dubliner as well as the Eamon Cleary Professor of Irish Studies at Otago, chairs the discussion, exploring the visceral appeal of these ever-popular genres.
