Wellington writer Pip Adam s short
story collection, Everything We Hoped
For, has won the New Zealand Society
of Authors best first book award in the
Chief judge Paul Diamond praised
Adam s striking artistic vision . He
said she had the chops to carry off her
unsentimental stories with humour and
Everything We Hoped For began as
unrelated stories, but was drawn
together by Adam s fascination with the
hope that appears even in lives under
I have a theory that people do what
they think is right -- a lot of people are
put in difficult circumstances and
they re still doing their best, doing what
they can with what they ve got, she
Adam said the award, which was
announced last month, caught her off-
She was also surprised by the
emotions her stories provoked.
The feedback from readers, reviewers
and judges had emphasised the stark
and uncompromising side of the stories,
while Adam felt they were hopeful.
I felt really guilty about it for a start.
I felt like I d unleashed this horrific,
It s really odd for me, because I feel
like I really vote for life, you know.
Like, Yay! Life s great! It s been odd for
me to be called out on that.
Each of the three Society of Authors
prizewinners received $2500.
Adam, who is doing a PhD
at Victoria University, said
her next challenge was to
find a way into writing as a
