New titles for coming year

Over the summer break our readers from Escalator Press have been considering manuscripts for the coming year. A group of seven readers selected two outstanding manuscripts from a pre-selected pool of four, one a non-fiction memoir about a child growing up with acute arthritis, and the other a Young Adult novel that centres on surveillance as its major theme. We’re very excited about these manuscripts, both of which are debut works from ex-students with strong original voices and important things to say. Our hearty congratulations go out to Trish Harris and Logan Smith, who we are very pleased will be adding their weight to Escalator’s growing selection of excellent New Zealand books.
