Event description
Tea Tree Gully writer Nick Carroll launches his debut book 'Is there Something Wrong with me'

About this Event

Nick Carroll's memoir is a ‘coming of age’ story that follows the author’s journey from birth, through the foundational experiences of childhood to his 21st birthday in 1967.

Set in post-war New Zealand, it is a personal story of how a boy born in a tiny country town becomes stage struck and chooses ballet as the vehicle by which he attempts to realise an unlikely dream.

'Is There Something Wrong with Me?' is a frank and forensic self-examination told with honesty and wry humour. Its backdrop captures the flavour of the times, touching on such topics as the cold war, rugby, radio, religion, Marmite, the Royal Family, the ‘six o’clock swill’, conscription, small town newspapers, the ‘yellow peril’, The Beatles, Ed Hillary, and the glorious landscape of Aotearoa.
