In his second novel, New Zealand author Wilkins has created a remarkable cast of expatriate New Zealand men and women drawn together through an unlikely set of coincidences. Adrian moves to London with Daniel, the fruit of Adrian's college romance with a woman now deceased. Emily, a student, is returning with her charge, Michaela, to London, where the four eventually meet, along with an ever-expanding offbeat and eccentric cast of characters. Wilkins deepens his portrait of alienation with clever and colorful allegories and metaphors. Little Masters only suffers from being too rich at times. The expansive but well-crafted dialogue might be better contained in a collection of stories but is still compelling in this challenging novel.
