High Stakes: Sarah Moss & Carl Shuker

  • Te Auaha, Tapere Iti 65 Dixon Street Wellington, Wellington, 6011 New Zealand (map)

In Sarah Moss’ novel Ghost Wall, a heady blend of situation and domestic power dynamics lead towards an extraordinary moment of tension. In his novel, The Mistake, Carl Shuker keeps the reader on a knife’s edge as medical misadventure plays out across a landscape of political meddling and personal integrity. Both authors are masters of writing high stakes. They talk with novelist Pip Adam on how and why they do it.
