Gee and Me: Rachel Barrowman
Historian Rachel Barrowman’s biography 'Mason: the Life of R.A.K Mason' won the biography category of the 2004 Montana Book Awards and received a wealth of critical praise. Her new book takes on another key literary figure in New Zealand. 'Maurice Gee: Life and Works' is the product of nearly ten years’ research, and is the first major biography of one of our most highly esteemed writers. In discussion with Bill Manhire, Barrowman will shed light on Gee’s influences, the work that went into making the 'Plumb' trilogy, 'Prowlers' and other New Zealand classics, the process of writing a life, and why it is that writers make such compelling subjects.

Writers on Mondays is presented by the International Institute of Modern Letters at Victoria University, with the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa.
