Gigi Fenster worked as a law lecturer and construction lawyer in South Africa before moving to New Zealand. Her short stories have been published in various literary journals in New Zealand and abroad, and her writing has been translated into Telugu and published in an Indian daily newspaper.
"Gigi Fenster has made a standout debut . . . the writing is tight, the protagonist memorable and the revelations stitched with a subtle finesse." --Paula Green, poet and reviewer, New Zealand Herald
