Books Info:

In the Palace Gardens free pdf A superbly poised and finely nuanced short story, tracking a pivotal point in a relationship built on reticence and recognition of differences. In the wintry light of the late afternoon, a man and a woman walk through snow-covered palace gardens. Their careful conversation skates over intensely private thoughts, their feelings and memories buried deep like the gardens under the snow. As darkness falls and they fail to find the exit, both the past and their future become clear. Beautifully atmospheric, this short story is a masterpiece.

About Sarah Quigley

Sarah Quigley was born in Christchurch. She is a novelist, critic, non-fiction writer, poet, and columnist. She has a DPhil in Literature from the University of Oxford and is a graduate of Bill Manhire's creative writing course. In 1998, she won the Buddle Findlay Sargeson Fellowship. Her short stories and poetry have been widely broadcast and published, and she has won many prizes, including the Sunday Star-Times Short Story Award and the Commonwealth Pacific Rim Short Story Award. The Observer wrote, 'Sensual, monstrous and bewitching ... Quigley's prose imparts constant shocks of lyricism, intensity and acuity.' Her publications include novels, short fiction, a creative writing manual and poetry collections, many of which have sold internationally. Her second novel, Shot, was long-listed for the 2005 International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award, and her third novel, Fifty Days, saw her featured in Waterstones UK 20 Faces of the Future. In 2000 she won the inaugural Creative New Zealand Berlin Residency. Since then she has divided her time between New Zealand and Berlin. Her 2011 novel The Conductor, which is set during the siege of Leningrad, won the Booksellers Choice Award. The New Zealand Herald wrote of The Conductor: 'This extraordinary novel is a symphony on the power of love - the love of music, home, family, city, and Quigley's love of writing. Each sentence carries the weight of these loves, but each sentence is characterised by an unexpected moving lightness of being. A triumph on every level, the book also contains the Shostakovich CD for you to play as you read.'
