Description - The Writing Life: Twelve New Zealand Authors by Deborah Shepard
A unique and intimate survey of the lives and work of 12 of our most acclaimed writers: Patricia Grace, Tessa Duder, Owen Marshall, Philip Temple, David Hill, Joy Cowley, Vincent O'Sullivan, Albert Wendt, Marilyn Duckworth, Chris Else, Fiona Kidman and Witi Ihimaera. As a group they are now the `elders' of New Zealand literature; they forged the path for the current generation. These interviews reveal not just the grand moments of their careers but also the defeats and disappointments. There are also stories about the enabling and symbiotic role of editors and publishers, showing how key industry figures have played a critical role in shaping New Zealand's literary landscape. They also share some advice on writing. Magnificent portraits by distinguished photographer John McDermott complete the package.
