Little Masters, the second novel by acclaimed novelist and short-story writer Damien Wilkins, is the story of young New Zealanders abroad and the people and places they encounter. They include a father and son in a London squat and a nanny in the American Midwest, and the settings range from the Gravitron at the Wellington Trade Fair to an insect research laboratory in an English meadow.
'His ability to create complex yet fully believable children characters is especially extraordinary, and his keen ear for dialogue veers unpredictably between wit and poignancy. . . . a tour de force display of a deep and abiding literary gift and marks Wilkins as a young novelist of extraordinary promise.' —Publishers' Weekly
