NZ Int'l Arts Festival 10 - Afternoon Tea w. Jenny Pattrick
13 images Created 14 Mar 2010
Readers enjoy high tea with celebrated novelist Jenny Pattrick, as she talks about becoming a best-selling writer in her sixties, her recent sojourn in France and her new novel Inheritance. Pattrick discusses her hugely successful early novels, including The Denniston Rose and Heart of Coal, and her increasingly international reputation. Best known for her historical fiction, Pattrick's new novel takes her readers back to Samoa in the 1960s and to the New Zealand of today. As with her earlier books, Inheritance once again marries vivid landscapes with a page-turning narrative - this time with a mystery.
