Event description
Join Dame Fiona Kidman as she discusses her distinguished literary career with Irish poet and novelist Majella Cullinane.

About this Event

Having established herself as one of New Zealand’s most celebrated and best-loved novelists over a long and varied career, Dame Fiona Kidman has belatedly turned to crime!

Her latest novel, This Mortal Boy, tells the true story of young Irish immigrant Albert ‘Paddy’ Black, the so-called ‘Jukebox Killer’, who was hanged for the murder of a teenage acquaintance in 1950s Auckland.

The novel, which won the $53,000 Acorn Foundation Fiction Prize, was described by the NZ Listener as ‘a tale about violent acts that is infused with humanity and compassion’.

Dame Fiona will discuss This Mortal Boy, as well as her distinguished literary career, with prize-winning Irish poet and novelist, Majella Cullinane.
