A darkly comic, gritty, punch-in-the-guts new novel that captures life on the poverty line in Aotearoa now, from the author of 1986, Iceland and I Thought We'd Be Famous.

Monday Woolridge is a fighter with a face like a broken dinner plate. Fifteen years ago, her kid brother Eddy disappeared and she's been looking for him ever since. When she's not training, Monday works in a bar selling drinks to rich assholes and dreaming of escape. Together with her flatmate JJ, Monday comes up with a scheme to make enough money to lift them both out of debt. But when things go awry, fleeing the city is their only option to escape the gangsters, the vampires and the ghosts of Monday's past. 

'Written with compassion and skill, Poor People with Money is a violent uprising of a novel. This is New Zealand.' - Pip Adam
