I have long admired Ian Cross from afar, I guess because of his 1957 novel The God Boy, now widely regarded as a modern classic, because of his editorship of the Listener, for the work he did on the establishment of the New Zealand authors’ fund and for his TV programme Column Comment all those years ago.
And so I was delighted to come across his just-published memoir.
But there is precious little about his life over the past 25 years. What has he been doing? Another volume please Ian!
