Aotearoa author Patricia Donovan is having a very busy 2021. Earlier this year she released her debut novel The Remarkable Miss Digby and she's following it up a few months later with a second novel The Madison Gap.
It's a compelling story of an organised life falling to pieces. It's also a cautionary tale about pulling on the threads of our past and power of family secrets. Patricia speaks to Standing Room Only producer Rob Kelly about the suffocating aura of suburban Sydney, where the novel is set.
