Life for the reality TV generation
Meet two authors chronicling the off-kilter experiences of upbeat millennials. Candice Carty-Williams’s Queenie sees a Jamaican British woman search for identity. Jojo Moyes called the novel ‘brilliant, timely, funny, heartbreaking’. Annaleese Jochems’s classy debut Baby made waves back home: fellow New Zealander Eleanor Catton called it ‘sultry, sinister, hilarious and demented’. Their lively conversation is chaired by Sasha de Buyl-Pisco.
