Staff Review: End Times

End Times
by Rebecca Priestley

Review by Livvy

I’m convinced that Rebecca Priestley is one of New Zealand’s greatest minds and must be protected at all costs! She’s wonderful! Her musings in End Times achieve a great balance of immeasurable intelligence and a deep empathy. Her adult anxieties around the pandemic and climate change are informed through her years of teenage angst and religion, presenting her life thus far as one full of experiences worth living and learning from. For fans of Rachel Kushner’s The Hard Crowd and Joan Didion’s Slouching Towards Bethlehem
