Fish In The Swim Of The World
'This is a book of memories ...They are as true and as fallible as any memories distorted by time and distance and a writer's choice of words...' In the debut memoir that kickstarted a writing career that hasspawned 17 books, including many award winners, Ben Brown writes of a quintessentially New Zealand way of living that is replete with meaning. Gathered from the tobacco-green valleys of the Motueka River where he grew up during the 1960s and 70s, Browns memoir is rich with a sense of place, of family. The strands of his parents lives reach from Outback Australia and the hardship years of the Great Depression and World War II, to the Waikato heart of the Kingitanga and a re-emergent people, to a time and place where tobacco was king and asmall farm by a river was the sum of all ambition. Each story, each portrait, resonates with the dignity, warmth and understated humour of a fine new poetic voice.
