Colm Tóibín once referred to Rick Gekoski as a "master storyteller", and he has been called the "Bill Bryson of the book world".

Certainly, his rich experiences as writer, broadcaster, academic, Booker judge and rare books specialist have provided him with fascinating material. The secret to his success is the honesty and self-deprecating humour so prevalent in his latest book, Outside of a Dog, a memoir in which he wraps his life around twenty-five books and their meaning for him.

Bask in the brilliant and often hilarious stories of the bestselling author of Tolkien’s Gown & Other Stories of Great Authors and Rare Books. Chair: John Carey.

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