Everyone is welcome at Page & Blackmore Booksellers on Friday 18 June at 5.15 pm when Trish Palmer be talking about her new book Knock Knock: Confessions of a Kiwi Interviewer.

Knock Knock contains extraordinary stories from many years spent conducting interviews. This is the world of the dreaded door-knock from the other side of the door. Trish Palmer has been working as an interviewer and area manager for market research companies for over 20 years, invited into the homes and private lives of an astonishing array of folk from every lifestyle imaginable. Her experiences on the job entail everything from bare bottoms to angry cats, the desperately struggling to the well-off, and everyone in between.

There is comedy and sadness, surprises and the downright odd, from witches to boat-builders, dope growers and more. Poignant, hilarious, and always thought-provoking, this is a highly entertaining read. Knock Knock is published by Upstart Press.

Wearing another hat, Trish Palmer is the Treasurer of NZSA Top of the South branch.
