An Affair of the Heart: a Celebration of Frank Sargeson's Centenary
This is a second-hand copy of the book An Affair of the Heart: a Celebration of Frank Sargeson's Centenary edited by Graeme Lay and Stephen Stratford.
From the back:
Short story writer, novelist and playwright Frank Sargeson (1903-1982) laid the foundation for a truly New Zealand literature and was a mentor for scores of aspiring writers who met and talked at his Takapuna bach.
The Frank Sargeson Trust continues his work in helping New Zealand writers. In 1997 the national law firm Buddle Findlay became the sponsor of the fellowship established in his name to allow a writer to live and work free from the financial hardships that Sargeson had to contend with all his life.
In this anthology, which marks the centenary of Frank Sargeson's birth, writers who knew Sargeson recall his generosity and spirit. Younger writers who have held the Buddle Findlay Sargeson Fellowship testify to his enduring legacy with poems, short stories and excerpts from work in progress.
The collection is a showcase for many of our finest writers, along with a selection of Sargeson's writing at its brilliant best.
