In her essay collection The Beautiful Afternoon, Airini Beautrais explores history, literature, Star Wars, sea hags, beauty products, tarot, swimwear, environmentalism and pole dancing to deliver a virtuoso inquiry into how we become, and change, who we are. Exploring a mountaineering disaster in Kaikōura to a literary encounter in Austria, a country mansion to a volcanic archipelago, David Coventry’s Performance is a vivid, at times disorienting series of journeys, stopovers and emergencies that take in the world. The two writers share a searingly intellectual and inquiring style and they join Alex Casey in conversation.
