Transcribed by Margaret Scott, with a Dramatis Personae and annotations by Andrew Parsloe, these are the journals of an intelligent young man, just thirty when they begin, living through the Second World War in Britain. In journal entries that quickly become a daily habit/necessity, he struggles with relationships, what part he can play in the war effort, what he should do with his life, whether he should return to New Zealand...and creates a moving and always interesting document. Hundreds of people - especially emerging writers and artists, both British and Kiwi - appear in these pages, usually as visitors to London, and he finds an important friend in Colin Roberts. Rachel Barrowman's 'Finding "a Home for the Spirit" ' discusses the journals as an exploration of 'identity and self...during the restless war years'. When Brasch resolved to return to New Zealand at the end of 1945, it was 'part of a cultural mission: to make his contribution to the development in New Zealand of a mature...literary and arts culture'.
