Sue Younger - Days Are Like Grass

From Standing Room Only, 2:36 pm on 28 August 2016

Sue Younger swapped a career in documentary-making for the life of a novelist. Her debut, Days are Like Grass, is set in part at Starship Children's Hospital, the workplace of paediatric surgeon Claire Bowerman. Claire's reluctantly returned to New Zealand from London - and she's got secrets that are affecting her relationships with her Israeli partner and her teenage daughter. Lynn Freeman talks to Sue about the often thin line between fact and fiction.
