I recently spent some time with my friend writer Megan Dunn discussing my new book. Our chat has now been posted on the Wellington City Gallery website and you can read it here. I held a terrific launch event hosted by Robert Heald Gallery in Wellington, so there are about 30 or so copies floating about town in the hands of friends and colleagues, but official release of the book is in February. The book can be pre-ordered from the University of Chicago's website as well as a number of other online sources. If ever you are one of the kind few who has been reading entries on this blog, you might have noticed that it went dark over the past year. This was largely due to finishing up the major book project, other work commitments, and preparations for other writing projects. I do hope to post some entries more regularly, but have turned to FB and Twitter to share most news and info.
