One of Ben's: A New Zealand Medley
by Maurice Shadbolt

Hardback, 1993, 313pages,very good condition

One of Ben's is the lively, often funny, sometimes poignant, story of New Zealand's most distinguished storyteller. Maurice Shadbolt gives us a personal memoir - but this is also the story of his felonius forebears and robust relatives, a tale that begins with burglar and convict Benjamin Shadbolt's transportation from England in 1845. One of Ben's reveals also Maurice Shadbolt's own early political graspings and literary growing pains, his friendship with the inspirational James K. Baxter and the irrepressible Kevin Ireland, his own meanderings through Eastern and Western Europe, all giving way with real grace and power to ruminations on the shape of one's life and the coming to terms with one's sense of home and of native voice.
