Book Launch: Amphibian by Christina Neuwirth

  • Lighthouse - Edinburgh's Radical Bookshop 43-45 Nicolson Street Edinburgh, Scotland, EH8 9BE United Kingdom (map)

Pick out your favourite tie and don your business socks for an all-staff meeting themed celebration of an extraordinary new talent! We are thrilled to launch Christina Neuwirth‘s astonishing debut Amphibian. Shortlisted for the 2016 Novella Award, Amphibian is set in an office that is slowly being flooded with water following a management directive - a biting, brilliant satire of today’s dire office culture.

Amphibian is a wryly poignant parable, surreal and tender, with a wit drier than…well, you’ll see. Sweetly realised details give teasing life to a story of daily routine, self-doubt, small rebellions, and sometimes just missing the bigger picture.”
– Rachel McCrum
