NZ and Australian Writers' Lives

NZ & Australian Writers  Judith Ridge - editor  The Book that Made Me  Walker Books 2016  $22.99pb 253pp  ISBN 978 1 9222 4488 8  Themes: Writing lives

32 New Zealand and Australia writers including Mandy Hager, Bernard Beckett, Ted Dawe, Shaun Tan, Cath Crowley and Catherine Mayo give insights into the books that hooked them as children and young adults as well as sharing parts of their writing lives. This is totally engaging and fascinating material and has been meticulously collated with supporting lists of the books mentioned and writers’ backgrounds. I think this may have been available for a couple of months but I have only just received it. Once read it is a bedside table book (well for me anyway)

Secondary students to adults
