Poet Kevin Ireland said that Maurice Shadbolt (one of his closest friends) set himself up as a full-time writer by “self-belief, hard work, talent, thick skin, effrontery, charm, appalling behaviour and sheer bloody audacity”.

Philip Temple tasked himself with traversing the life and work of one of New Zealand’s most popular and successful novelists to produce Life as a Novel: A biography of Maurice Shadbolt (Volume One, 1932–1973). Chris Else will ask him about the challenge of navigating the doings of a talented, popular, flawed and complex human being.
Please note that space is limited so admission cannot be guaranteed.
