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
