It's 1978: the Auckland abortion clinic has been forced to close and sixteen-year-old Charlie has to fly to Sydney, but the plane is delayed on the tarmac. It's 2019: Charlie's tightly contained Wellington life with her grandson Tommy is interrupted by the unexpected intrusions o...f Tommy's first girlfriend, Jenna, and the father he has never known, Jim. The year turns, and everything changes again. Loop Tracks is a major New Zealand novel, written in real time against the progress of the Covid-19 pandemic and the New Zealand General Election and euthanasia referendum. 'Loop Tracks is an urgent and unexpected novel about freedom and responsibility - about a woman forced to wear her solitary and unsupported choice as a puzzling mistake, and about the very present past that she must face to help her family and herself.' -Elizabeth Knox 'This fictional inter-generational story will speak to a wide readership about the choices that are important for our future.' -Dame Margaret Sparrow
