The Launch of Obsession by Elspeth Sandys

  • Ekor Bookshop & Cafe 17b College Street Wellington, Wellington, 6011 New Zealand (map)

Upstart Press & Ekor Bookshop & Cafe are thrilled to invite you to come and celebrate Obsession, the new book from Elspeth Sandys.

Obsession is a literary mystery tale, the story of an obsessive love affair, and the repercussions long after the affair has ended. The two people at the heart of the story are writers. The third person in the triangle is a celebrated poet of Dalmatian extraction. It recreates the era in an atmosphere charged with New Zealand’s 1980s culture, set on an island where the dense bush forms a metaphor for the difficulties of a struggling writer striving to raise her head above the dominating reputation of her lover.

Enjoy wine and nibbles with one of New Zealand's most treasured authors, Elspeth Sandys and hear from the wonderful Jane Westaway who will be launching this brilliant new novel.

Launched at Ekor Bookshop & Cafe 6-7.30pm on the 9th of March.
