Author(s): Linda Niccol
Love can come at you from all sorts of angles… Niccol’s love stories are by turns darkly humorous, poignant and insightful: a style-obsessed architect realises it’s what’s on the inside that counts; a man is so preoccupied with collecting that he lets the most precious thing of all slip through his fingers; a girl’s first experience of falling in love changes her view of the world; a woman comes to terms with infertility; and a man tries to swim against the tide of middle-age. Linda Niccol came to writing later in life, discovering it was the most satisfying experience she could have, next to spending time with her daughter, her dogs and her husband. She trained as a journalist and now works in advertising. She lives on the Kapiti Coast.
