The Luminary: Eleanor Catton – WORD Christchurch

Cover of The LuminariesFiction is one of the places we can go to experience real closure.

WORD Christchurch Writers and Readers Festival was a place for hometown heroes and heroines as well as international stars. Eleanor Catton was one of the highlights of The Stars are out tonight. She read from The Luminaries in a piece that included my favourite quote (page 502 Luminaries nerds): ‘I suppose that to know a thing is to see it from all sides’.

On Saturday 30 August, Eleanor was in conversation with Kate De Goldi in front of a packed Cardboard Cathedral. Here are some of the quotable quotes from this interesting session:
