Back to programme


We’re thrilled that Women’s Prize longlisted writer of novels, short stories, feature films and plays Emily Perkins is back with her first novel in 11 years. Lioness is a poised, beautifully observed page-turner in which Therese begins to question her privileged but insular life and the forces that have shaped her when rumours of corruption gather around her husband’s latest property development. Emily joins Julie Hill in conversation about her life and work. 

Listen to Kiran’s RNZ review of Lioness here.
