Addressed To Greta

Author(s): Fiona Sussman

Contemporary Fiction | NZ Fiction

Greta Jellings lives a small life. No expectation, no disappointment had been her mother’s mantra. It serves Greta well now too. At 30-something years of age she has spent her life pleasing others; working for the past 22 years in a pool-chemicals shop just one of the many compromises she’s had to make. She has embarrassingly big feet and a pet chicken named Marilyn Monroe, but who is she really? Even Greta has no idea. So, when she receives a call from a lawyer acting on behalf of her dear friend Walter, Greta finds herself presented with a terrifying, though compelling, opportunity. Walter’s bequest, sees Greta embark on a mystery journey, each destination revealed in a letter on the eve of her departure. ADDRESSED TO GRETA is a captivating novel about a woman learning how to express her true self. It is an important story about finding the courage to be seen, and a testament to the transformative power of friendship.

Winner of the 2021 NZ Booklovers Best Adult Fiction Prize, this is a great read for Kiwis who love to travel, but can't cross borders for a while!  Fiona Sussman is a North Shore local and her writing appeals to a wide range of readers - here at Long Story Short we reckon you can't go wrong with this book as a gift, a good beach read or an escape from the confines of the current pandemic.
