Novelist, travel writer and academic, Sarah Moss is earning rave reviews for her latest novel Ghost Wall. It’s been described as a Brexit-inspired parable, populated by characters plotting a path through a present resounding to the echoes of history.

A Professor in the University of Warwick’s Creative Writing programme, the novel is Moss’ sixth, following The Tidal Zone (2016), Signs for Lost Children (2015), Bodies of Light (2014), Night Waking (2011) and Cold Earth (2009). She’s also lived in Iceland, idolises Janet Frame, and is very scared of dogs!

She will be appearing at four events during the Verb festival in Wellington in early November.
