Moments of Invention is a unique collaboration between poet Greg O'Brien and photographer Robert Cross. It comprises portraits - in words and photographs - of 21 New Zealand writers, from established authors like Janet Frame and Maurice Shadbolt to relative newcomers like Elizabeth Knox and Richard von Sturmer. Based on interviews, the text includes extracts from novels, short stories and poems, some of which had not been published before. The book has light to medium general wear with creasing to the covers and dog eared pages but overall an important issue and well worth the read.
