A compelling and sometimes uncomfortable read, The Mirror Book (RHNZ Vintage, 2021) is Charlotte’s examination and re-examination of the narratives surrounding her memories of a childhood in a famous literary family, and the effect the careful construction of those narratives had on her sense of self and stability, and on the life she creates.

The messy reality of family life, the different versions of truth drawn from memory, reframing a narrative – Phillippa Duffy will spend an hour in conversation with Charlotte about these and other aspects of this powerful memoir.
