Book Launch | ‘The Waters’ by Carl Nixon

August 17, 2023 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Join us and Penguin NZ to celebrate the launch of The Waters, by Carl Nixon, launched by Morrin Rout. All welcome – arrive from 5.30pm for a 6pm start. Please RSVP to rsvp@scorpiobooks.co.nz for catering purposes.



One family. Forty years.

The Waters kids ― practical, athletic Mark; the physically beautiful dreamer Davey; and the baby of the family, Samantha ― have had to face more than their fair share of challenges. 1979 was the year their father sold up the farm and invested all the family’s money in a doomed property development next to the ocean in Christchurch. Is that when ‘everything started going wrong’, as Mark believes?

Will their bond survive the passage of time or will the three siblings succumb to their parents’ legacy of failure? Can the past be overcome . . . and forgiven?

A novel in 21 stories by acclaimed novelist and playwright Carl Nixon.
