NZ Ockham Book Awards
http://www.radionz.co.nz/news/nat...ds-the-wish-child-takes-top-novel

This is the NZ top book awards.  I don't think I have read any of Catherine Chidley's work; I get her muddled with Charlotte Grimshaw and I think it was the latter's Opportunity (short stories) that we read at our bookclub once and we didn't like it, and I didn't finish it.  Though that may just because I don't like short stories and the style was a bit oblique and difficult for me.

I am quite pleased to see that the book I took out from the library after our little book club meeting there was one of the finalists - Emma Neale's Billy Bird which someone else had read and recommended.
