Astonished Dice, Collected short stories by Geoff Cochrane

Geoff Cochrane talks with Fergus Barrowman of Victoria University Press about a life spent in poetry and fiction, and about his latest book Astonished dice.
This free, one-off event is the first time Geoff has made a literary appearance in Auckland.
Writes Geoff of his own style, "Less is more. Though Hemingway's brand of simplicity can be a bit of a con, less is always more. And my history of addiction to alcohol (my very own 'backstory') is a gift that just keeps on giving."

Speaker bio

Geoff Cochrane started publishing in 1975 and has since published 11 books of poetry, two novels, and three short fiction collections. He was awarded the Janet Frame Prize for Poetry in 2009 and the inaugural Nigel Cox Unity Books Award in 2010.
Books will be available for purchase courtesy of Unity Books. Geoff will sign books after the event.
