Former leading New Zealand publisher and bookseller, and widely experienced judge of both the Commonwealth Writers Prize and the Montana New Zealand Book Awards, talks about what he is currently reading, what impresses him and what doesn't, along with chat about the international English language book scene, and links to sites of interest to booklovers.
As 2018 draws to a close, we remember
the literary luminaries we lost this year. They include novelists,
playwrights, and poets who were at the top of their fields and created

a politician, who shared their wisdom and experiences through their
written works. What better way to honor their accomplishments and
legacies than to read their enduring works?
