Buy Sodden Downstream

We're delighted that Brannavan has gone from the longlist to the shortlist, from ten contenders down to just four, for fiction of the year at the annual Ockham NZ Book Awards. We'll be there to celebrate on May 15th in Auckland. Hurrah - a first for Lawrence & Gibson!

We've just got new stock in to meet demand, as we've also seen a few great reviews recently.

Rob Kidd from the Otago Daily Times wrote that Sodden Downstream was "essential reading for modern New Zealand"

In the NZ Listener Catherine Woulfe wrote, "This novel is a gem. Sita is a gentle, endearing vessel for the themes of social injustice, and her ­determination and optimism should ­qualify her as one of fiction’s great ­heroines. Highly recommended."
