CK Stead Crossing the Bar

C.K. Stead and Alan Curnow at the launch of The Bells of Saint Babel's, Curnow's last book (March 2001).

C.K. Stead is perhaps New Zealand’s most respected writer and literary figure. He lives in Auckland. Note: Anthony Thwaite (1930-2021) was an English poet, critic and editor of Philip Larkin’s letters and poems. Ann Thwaite (b. 1932) is known for her insightful biographies. She lived in New Zealand in the early 1940s.
