Coincidentally, Carl Nixon and Sarah Quigley were friends at high school and university in Christchurch – both are now acclaimed writers and they catch up to talk about their latest work.

Quigley’s "The Conductor" is set in Leningrad, besieged by Nazi troops in 1941: the composer Dmitri Shostakovich spends his days digging ditches to defend his city, and his nights composing a new symphonic work.

Nixon’s "Settlers' Creek", which reviewers nationwide named as one of the top books of 2010, is by contrast very much a “New Zealand” novel, exploring the claims of both indigenous people and more recent settlers to have a spiritual link to the land.

Chair: Graham Beattie.
