Gen X and Millenial fashion industry egos clash in the new novel by Pip Adam - The New Animals, published by Victoria University Press. Old-school hairdressers - spikey Carla and androgenous Duey -have seen the industry change over the decades. But New Generation fashion designers like Tommy are fearless and ambitious.
Pip Adam won the New Zealand Post Best First Book Award in 2011 for her short story collection Everything We Hoped For, and two years later published her debut novel, I'm Working on a Building. She also shares her conversations with authors on her Better Off Read podcast. She talks to Lynn Freeman and reads from The New Animals.
