Creeks and Kitchens: A Childhood Memoir
|Series:||BWB Texts Ser.|
Widely regarded as one of New Zealand's greatest fiction writers, Maurice Gee has written virtually no non-fiction. The exceptions are the two exquisite childhood reminiscences combined here into a memoir. Gee's description of childhood and family life in West Auckland offers illuminating insights into some of the creative forces that have driven his writing.
