Jane Smiley arrives in NZ flush with the success of her Last Hundred Years trilogy – an investigation of American identity through the Midwestern Langdon clan, from the 1920s to the 2020s. Be prepared for a wide-ranging conversation with Paula Morris. Smiley’s back catalogue includes an essay on knitting, Why Bother?, a novel on the horse-racing business, Horse Heaven, and the Pulitzer-winning King Lear-inspired A Thousand Acres.
