My new novel, DEATH OF A TYPOGRAPHER, was published by Australian Scholarly Publishing in September 2019.
“Nick Gadd’s Death of a Typographer is a romp of a novel. It’s a witty and playful quasi-detective fiction that’s populated by a motley crew of obsessives who swoon or grimace at particular letterforms. Gadd’s endearingly oddball characters ride on a narrative full of typographical jokes and exotic locations. You’ll never look at fonts again without appreciating their idiosyncrasies after reading this book.” – Thuy On, ‘Books of the Year 2019’, The Weekend Australian
My first novel, GHOSTLINES (Scribe, 2008) won a Victorian Premier’s Literary Award and a Ned Kelly Award. It’s a mystery novel set in the Melbourne art world.
