Home/Books/Kingfisher, Kingfisher, Take My Luck

These book memoirs record half a century writing and sometimes publishing 51 Kiwi social histories, some fictional, some best-sellers, some footnotes, reviews from savage to sublime, and strong reactions:

  • Muldoon threatens prison
  • Helen Clark sends warm congratulations
  • Mike Hosking asks who is the clown in the kilt
  • Kim Hill supposes marriage
  • Carmen says thanks and Kiri no thanks
  • Jason Gunn enjoys a joke, John Clarke an imaginary quote
  • All Blacks duck for cover

‘I was so arrested by what is really a history of the author’s writing and publishing life that I couldn’t put it down and read it in one long sitting yesterday.’
Graham Beattie, Beattie’s Book Blog, 7 November 2014
