NOTED QC WRITES, AND PUBLISHES, BOOK ABOUT HIS LIFE
Guest reviewer - Andrew at Dymocks Booksellers Ponsonby.
Prominent Auckland barrister Peter Williams QC, has just released his latest book Petals of Memory.
In this book Peter writes about his life when he is not being a barrister.
It begins with a story about the acquisition of his first racing yacht and the ring-in crew for its first race under his ownership.
He then shares poems and odes about sailing, the sea, Great Barrier Island, and family and friends dear to him.
He has some great tales to tell about protesting against Mururoa and the book contains lots of black and white plates.
Petals of Memory is self published and printed locally. While not exactly a handsome volume it does endear itself to me.
