song Description:

Every morning for the last 30 years, C.K. Stead has written fiction and poetry that has won him numerous accolades both in New Zealand and overseas. His latest book, Shelf Life, collects the best of his afternoon work: reviews and essays, letters and diaries, lectures and opinion pieces. Stead writes about everything from David Bain to Parnell, and offers reflections on his time as the current New Zealand poet laureate. Throughout, he is vintage Stead: clear, direct, intelligent, decisive, personal. He talks with Paul Millar about life on and off the shelf. Photo credit: Marti Friedlander
