    Only if that woman had to fly to some book festival in India, work a taxpayer funded arts type job, and whinge that she embarrased to represent short-term profit obsessed politicians intent on destroying the planet.

    After successfully getting the old mainstream media to publicise her views worldwide, and then attract a like minded audience on twitter, facebook, and soundbites from teenager pop stars, and elderly authors…… then yes…she could well be a so called type.

    I just saw a silly bint fall on her arse on an icy road.

      Things we will never see. Eleanor Catton in India calling them out on the rampant rape culture which exists there…

        Well as an ambassador for New Zealand (although I can find no mention of her name on the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade website), she does have to exercise a degree of diplomacy in what she says…

          Indeed and her comments to date prove what a good job she is doing in that regard. What a fine representative of our country she is./ sarc

    Well she is a little like Eleanor, formed a crazy opinion, voiced it, and ended up on her a*** looking rather foolish. ;)

    Eleanor, is very boring for one so young.

  • labourmustbeliquidated

    I hear Eleanors book is a pretentious piece of crap too, which is not surprising because books that win awards usually are.

      Waste of money?
      Effort = time = money, Paper = murdered trees = money, Ink = petrochemicals = money, Grants to Eleanor = taxes to us = our money, etc. etc.
      So yes, there are many levels of waste.

    I think Eleanor needs a intervention maybe.
