Gregory Baines talks about his book – Nail House

14 April @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Canberra author Gregory Baines talks about his book, a novella set in modern China against the background of massive urban and cultural change, and the challenges of corruption – both domestic and foreign. Lindon, an Australian project manager with a failed marriage behind him, is lured to China with the promise of a lucrative alary. His task: to solve the problem of a ‘Nail House’, the home of a stubborn old man who refuses to relocate, even as the bulldozers move in and the skyscrapers grow around him.  But as Lindon negotiates with the old man’s family, he finds sense where there is none. And love where there is war.
