Australian-based New Zealand born writer Meg Mason’s smash hit, Sorrow and Bliss, was shortlisted for the Women’s Prize for Fiction last year. Described as ‘The Bell Jar but hilarious’ by the Graham Norton Book Club, the novel has also drawn comparisons to Fleabag by Phoebe Waller-Bridge. Meg joins Noelle McCarthy on stage to discuss her life, from her Foxton/Palmerston North beginnings, her career as a journalist for the Financial Times and writing about motherhood before turning her hand to critically-acclaimed bestselling fiction.
