One Question Quiz

BooksJuly 26, 2018

Papercuts Podcast: new books, new studio, new pod


Louisa, Kiran and Jenna are back with all the latest book news, reviews and gossip.

This month – authors are being ferried all over New Zealand to speak to you, the reader; the PANZ Book Design Awards are upon us; and the Man Booker Prize Longlist has just been announced.

We also give you some book reviews, non book reviews and delve into the art of not giving a fuck (but is this okay?)

And we know you’ve been waiting for it: this month’s quiz takes us back to high school classics.
