The Author

Nick at the University of Queensland





Nick Earls’s novels have won awards in the UK and Australia, and appeared on bestseller lists in both those countries and the Amazon Kindle Store. Two have been adapted into feature films and five into stage plays.

Vancouver_FCBy the time I had finished Gotham it didn’t matter to me how long these stories were, just that they were well written, fully formed and satisfying. They are beautiful books that can fit in your pocket, meaningful stories enhanced by great design. Novellas are notoriously tricky to sell, but in the Wisdom Tree project by Nick Earls the novella has never seemed more appealing.
—Kym Bagley, bookseller, Dymocks Melbourne

Vancouver is the story Paul tells in plague times. It’s about the giant that influenced his life, it’s about the day the world changed, it’s about what happens when our giants come tumbling down. Think, any one of Giovanni Boccaccio’s stories from Decameron.⠀

This floored me. The format is a game changer and the linked novellas combine to create the best book I’ve read in 12 years, since David Mitchell’s Cloud Atlas. Five complex and distinct stories set in New York, Brisbane, Vancouver, Alaska and L.A. that somehow magically meet—I can’t quite believe it. Earls has never had his due but if this doesn’t get incredible press from here to Timbuktu, then publishing truly is broken. Or maybe he just fixed it, because Wisdom Tree is a transcendent wonder.
—Chris Flynn, Tiger in Eden and The Glass Kingdom
