Our Book of the Week, the wholly remarkable Greta & Valdin by Rebecca K. Reilly, is an irrepressible, seemingly off-hand yet sharply insightful novel set in the queerness, nerdiness and cultural diversity of a distinctly vibrant contemporary Aotearoa. It has (unsurprisingly) been short-listed for the Jann Medlicott Acorn Prize for Fiction in the 2022 Ockham New Zealand Book Awards.
