"A Kind of Biography"

An informal, unorthodox and highly diverting biography of the major New Zealand poet, wit and social commentator, Rex Fairburn (1904-57). The resulting picture is of a man very much larger than life, set against a kaleidoscope of events, some laughable, some serious, drawn from an era of impotance in New Zealand's social and cultural heritage.

The book is enhanced by the illustrative material the biographers have assembled: sketches, portraits and paintings by professionals in Fairburn's circle and by the writer himself; reproductions from many of the flamboyantly presented satires Fairburn had published by the small presses of the Thirties and Forties; doodles, limericks, drawings and photographs from family albums, friends, files and the archives of various New Zealand institutions.
