KATE DE GOLDI

Kate de Goldi lives in Wellington. She has won a number of accolades for her fiction, including the Katherine Mansfield Short Story Award and the Esther Glen Medal. Her book Clubs, illustrated by Jacqui Colley, won Book of the Year in the New Zealand Post Children's Book Awards in 2005. In 2001 Kate was made a New Zealand Arts Foundation Laureate.

Kate’s new novel, The 10PM Question, is a warm, surprising, real and intelligent novel you will fall in love with. Frankie Parsons is 12 and has a rodent voice of worry nibbling in his head. His new friend – colourful, creative, talkative Sydney – has relentless, unavoidable questions of her own that force Frankie and his family to face up to things that have lain dormant for years.

In Kate de Goldi's sensitive, vital and hilarious novel, Frankie and the reader walk hand in hand through pages that gleam with hope and humour. URSULA DUBOSARSKY
