A fascinating interview by the brilliant Diana Wichtel leads the new Listener.
In a print exclusive, she talks to Anne Perry, formerly known as Juliet Hulme.
Here’s a taste:
• Two minutes with George Henare.
• Rebecca Macfie on New Zealand’s water wars.
• David Cohen on Kiwiblogger and pollster David Farrar.
• Sally Blundell on Jacqueline Fahey.
• Books from Witi Ihimaera, PA O’Reilly, Carrie Tiffany and Antony Beevor, plus Bernard Carpinter’s roundup of crime novels and thrillers.
• Plus in music, singers Madeleine and Anna Pierard, The Valkyrie, Lawrence Arabia, Fiona Apple; in theatre, Awatea; and in curtural curmudgeonliness, Hamish Keith.
• And all the columns and cartoons and crosswords and recipes and what have you.
