A novel by

 
 
Based on a true story, Endurance is a gruesome and living demonstration of survival of the fittest, centred around a car yard in an everyday suburb (Lower Hutt), where a struggling car dealership stages an endurance competition in which a brand new Ford Explorer will be given to whomever can keep their hand on the vehicle the longest. At the same time, the contest serves as a metaphor for all the ways in which the characters, in their private lives, are enduring some kind of personal ordeal.
