The title of the book is “Adaptable TV:  Rewiring the Text”.  Dr Griggs will also have a chapter published in early 2017, ‘Reconfiguring the Nordic Noir Brand:  Nordic Noir TV Crime Drama as Remake’, in the edited collection of “The Routledge Companion to Adaptation Studies”.  Both the monograph and chapter look at the creative processes informing translation of narrative from one medium/culture to another.

Family HistoryDr Jeremy Fisher, Senior Lecturer in Writing, advises that his new book, “Faith, Hope and Stubborn Pride – searching for heaven in Aotearoa and Australia”, is in the final stages of preparation for publication.  Dr Fisher advises that the work is largely non-fiction, with fictional components, and through his research he explores how much a writer can extrapolate from the facts and still call his/her writing non-fiction.  The book is illustrated with numerous photographs.
