It's Wellington, now. Acoustic Engineer Michael Stirling's old life is gone. He's on the dating scene, learning te reo Maori, living in an upmarket apartment complex, and visiting his father who has dementia. Wearing his online dating disguise, Michael meets Chrissie, the widowed mother of a young son. Then his beloved adult daughter arrives from Auckland with a new attachment, an artist whose project will push them all towards key moments of risk and revelation. Dad Art is a vibrant, funny new work from the leading chronicler of contemporary life in Aotearoa. Told with great verve, this novel is about the capacity for surprise and renewal.

I went to a WORD event (Tickled Fiction) where this author was on the panel to discuss humorous writing in NZ fiction. He read an extract from this book and it was hilarious. I'm not even a man and it could still have been me. Not for young people who have no sympathy for mid-life crises.
