Pip Adam: Nothing to See

1 November 2020 | WORD Christchurch Spring Festival

Pip Adam has writen one of the most talked about novels of 2020, Nothing to See, which follows mysterious doppelgängers Peggy and Greta. Philip Matthews described it as ‘a novel about shame, loneliness, about wanting to do good and hoping for second chances’, ‘a real achievement’ that is ‘deeply affecting’ and ‘[pushes] the traditional limits of fiction.’ Her last book, The New Animals, won the 2018 Acorn Foundation Prize, and the judges called it ‘the book with the most blood on the page.’

She discusses her work, and her unique world view, with fellow novelist Carl Shuker.
