When Nicole Kid­man’s pro­duc­tion com­pany snapped up the film and tele­vi­sion rights to au­thor Liane Mo­ri­arty’s new book Nine Per­fect Strangers be­fore it was even re­leased, the au­thor knew she was on to a good thing. “I was thrilled!” Mo­ri­arty says. Shar­ing the first ex­tract of the novel in this is­sue, Mo­ri­arty gives us a glimpse into the world she’s cre­ated for what is sure to be an­other of her best-sell­ing books. “It’s the story of nine per­fect strangers who meet at a re­mote bou­tique health re­sort where they are tak­ing part in a 10-day re­treat. They’re hop­ing for weight loss and stress re­lief, mind­ful­ness and med­i­ta­tion, but it ends up a rather dif­fer­ent ex­pe­ri­ence than what they imag­ined.”
