A sequel to the successful books Kin of Place and The Writer at Work, this collection of critical writing takes the reader on a personal journey from the author’s earliest discovery of poetry as a young man to his latest experiences on the literary trail. This trip through literary history involves many writers, including Katherine Mansfield, T. S. Eliot, Michael King, and Elizabeth Knox. The book also includes a series of journal extracts that allow readers to get closer to the mind of the writer, his strong personal views about other writers, and his deep commitment to the role of criticism in literary life.

Product Description

Review

"The poetry criticism is first rate. . . . His journal entries . . . provide a valuable behind-the-scenes take on the international literary festival circuit."  —Sydney Morning Herald



"It is the story of 'love it or hate it' . . . a remarkably interesting New Zealand mind."  —New Zealand Listener


"The fascination of autofiction should not distract from the range of critical and autobiographical pleasures to be found in this book."  —The Warwick Review
