Stephen Daisley wrote Coming Rain and Mandy Brett is senior editor at Text Publishing. Coming Rain is described as masterful, sublime, and utterly believable in its characterization – brutal yet compassionate. This year it won the most prestigious prize at the Okham New Zealand Book Awards, the Acorn Foundation Literary Award.
Mandy is Stephen’s editor and in this session, the pair talk about the relationship between writer and publisher, author and editor and share the journey of this wonderful book.
This is Stephen’s second novel, his first book Traitor, published in 2010, won the Australian Prime Ministers Literary Award for Fiction. This session is a rare treat to hear from this West Australian based kiwi writer.
