Author(s): Lloyd Jones
VOLUME Mapua Literary Festival 2019 | Tickets
Lloyd Jones’s fable-like novel The Cage is a profound and unsettling look at how public inaction normalises and even encourages active mistreatment of refugees. How does society demonise those seen as ‘other’? Jones addresses urgent contemporary issues.
Lloyd Jones has been short-listed for the Booker Prize and has won the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize. The Cage was a finalist for the Acorn Prize for Fiction in the 2019 Ockham New Zealand Book Awards.
Lloyd will be in conversation with former cabinet minister and mayor Philip Woollaston.
