WIT WORLD

WORD Christchurch

Stephanie Johnson is one of our most versatile novelists, conjuring up serious historical fiction and incisive satire. Whatever she turns to, it’s her characters who carry the story and keep us coming back for more. Fiona Kidman said of Johnson’s new contemporary novel, Everything Changes, that it ‘startled [her] into wild laughter’. Patrick Evans’ new novel Bluffworld follows the travails of a ‘Meister-Bullshit-Kunstler’ through corporate university life. Together these two writers talk with the University of Canterbury’s Paul Millar about the art of satire in a country that has a reputation for rewarding gloomy literary tomes over laughs and biting wit
