We welcome back New York Times bestselling author Lionel Shriver (The Post-Birthday World, We Need to Talk About Kevin) with her highly acclaimed new novel 'So Much for That'.

'So Much for That' has been described as a searing, deeply humane novel about a crumbling marriage resurrected in the face of illness, and a family’s struggle to come to terms with disease, dying, and the obscene cost of medical care in modern America. The main characters in 'So Much for That' find a grave illness proves an unexpected opportunity for tenderness, renewed intimacy, and dry humour, and in defiance of the dark subject matter, Shriver has written a page-turner that presses the question: "How much is one life worth"?

In conversation with Charlotte Grimshaw.

Presented as a part of the Auckland Writers and Readers Festival.
