Book - 2009
Rate this:
C.K. Stead is one of New Zealand's most honoured writers and probably the most argued about. Judith Dell Panny has become a literary detective in her research into the origins of the Stead opus, from his early life to his influences here and abroad and their effects on his work. Controversies swirl around Stead. Why and how does he write as he does? What has shaped him, what are the patterns, repeated and intricate, that permeate his extraordinary and ongoing work? In her investigations, Panny also assesses the many effects his writing has on others. With Stead nobody sits on the fence.
