The launch for Dream House was quite dreamy, accompanied by the lyrical insights of Nina Mosall, the narrative chops of Renée Sarojini Saklikar, and the incisive questions posed by Nicola Harwood, plus a full house of listeners and readers. If you didn’t make it, copies can be purchased from Massy Books or ordered from your favourite indie bookstore.
