A bit of a technical trial, this one, for reasons too tedious to go into (besides, we don’t want to dispel the magic for you). Suffice it to say, you may encounter jump cuts worthy of Jean-Luc Godard. And you can blame the technical difficulties for my wandering trains of thought.
By way of compensation, a clip of Elvis Costello singing Psycho, as mentioned in the podcast.
With me to discuss David Ballantyne’s Sydney Bridge Upside Down are Gillian Newman of the University Bookshop Canterbury, Toby Buck of Unity Books in Wellington and Michael Byrne of McLeods Booksellers in Rotorua.
And be warned: the gloves are off spoiler-wise, so you’re best not to listen if you’ve not finished the book.
Otherwise enjoy – and please do take us to task, agree, whatever you see fit …
