From the inside flap:
DENIS GLOVER (1912–80) is one of New Zealand's outstanding literary figures. A celebrated poet, typographer and publisher, he played a key role in the Golden Age of New Zealand literature, which also produced Sargeson, Curnow, Mason, Fairburn and Brasch. The author of 21 collections of poetry as well as fiction, drama, miscellanies and autobiographical works, his Caxton Press was also the first to publish James K. Baxter and Janet Frame.
This first comprehensive biography of Glover investigates all aspects of his turbulent life. It examines closely his development as a writer and literary impresario and offers an illuminating portrayal of the New Zealand cultural scene during its most vital decades. It also provides revealing, poignant and sometimes disturbing insights into Glover's relationships with his family, his lovers and his literary colleagues.
Glover was also a brilliant wit, versatile sportsman, war hero and public celebrity Denis Glover: His Life presents a multi-faceted individual with an almost Elizabethan breadth of talents and enthusiasms, whose boisterous, bibulous, aggressive, unpredictable, extroverted and frequently scandalous behaviour masked a sensitive personality of considerable complexity.
