About

Montague Harry "Monte" Holcroft OBE was a New Zealand essayist and novelist. I did not want to be editor of the Listener he says. This was his reaction when, in 1948, he was offered the editorship. Reluctance overcome, Mr Holcroft came north to Wellington from the editorial chair of the Southland Times, retiring in 1967 after eighteen years of Listener service. This book gives the story of those years…

As a personal record of two important decades of New Zealand writing, this book is invaluable. It is, in addition, diverting and entertaining reading.

Includes monochrome drawings.
