Nailing Down the Saint with author Craig Cliff

Bruce McKenzie Booksellers | Tue 13 August, 2019

Craig Cliff’s new novel, Nailing Down the Saint, is a novel about the pursuit of dreams, the moral calculus this entails, and the possibility that the rational, materialist worldview isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. This smart, funny, thought-provoking book is full of surprises.

Join us in store in celebrating its release at 5.30pm on Tuesday August 13th.

Chaired by Thom Conroy (The Salted Air, The Naturalist).
