A conversation between Elizabeth & Sara Knox



This conversation took place in March of 2007. It’s a planning session, on Skype, between me and my sister Sara; she in her flat in a western suburb of Sydney, me in Wellington; both of us lying in bed in the dark, with cats.

Dreamquake by Elizabeth Knox
"I love Elizabeth Knox!!! I think The Vintner's Luck is a captivating piece of art, and The Angel's Cut and Mortal Fire are also among my favourite books of all time. The Dreamhunter Duet most certainly didn't let me down.

“You fainted and I caught you. It was the first time I'd supported a human. You had such heavy bones. I put myself between you and gravity. Impossible.”

“Happiness had never been like this before. Now it came like sun showers, the sun and the rain together. Happiness was happier than it had been - sharp, piercing, and snatched, like a breath while swimming in surf.”
Elizabeth Knox, Dreamhunter

“I have no particular plan in life - and that's something I rather like. Most things that people do seem to me to be rather dull and silly. In my ideal life I'd be left alone to read”
Elizabeth Knox, Dreamhunter
