In Your Favourites’ Favourites, our most loved writers introduces one of their favourite authors.

Celebrated novelist Charlotte Wood (Stone Yard Devotional) is a long-time fan of New Zealand writer Emily Perkins, whose previous novel, The Forrests, was longlisted for the Women’s Prize for Fiction.

Charlotte describes Emily’s latest book, Lioness, as another “cracker” and one she devoured in a single sitting: “A novel about families, money, and the implosions that happen when the good-girl mask so many women wear is finally torn off”.

Chat with Charlotte and Emily about her bold new novel exploring privilege, permissiveness and finding freedom from domesticity.
