"Frank Sargeson wrote fiction over almost half a century. During most of this time he also wrote occasional criticism. In form this varied from book reviews to imaginary dialogues, addresses at meetings or on the radio, opinions expressed in interviews. In subject matter he ranged widely, from appraisals of individual writers to mote general issues of literary form and content and the social milieu from which they arose. The relevance to his own fiction is usually apparent. Wriers considered include D.H. Lawrence, Sherwood Anderson, Henry Lawson, Rolf Boldrewood and Olive Schreiner, besides fellow New Zealanders as Katherine Mansfield, Janet Frame, Dan Davin, James Courage, Bill Pearson, Ronald Hugh Morrieson.

"A new edition of the short stories from the father of modern New Zealand writing and the man who introduced the speech of ordinary New Zealanders to our literature and took it to the international stage. This collection includes some early works which have not previously appeared in Sargeson collections. Frank Sargeson (1903 to 1982) was the mentor to many of our past and current writers, including Janet Frame, C.K. Stead, and Kevin Ireland. The annual Buddle Findlay Sargeson Fellowship continues this tradition. Among those to benefit were Michael King, Steve Braunias, Emily Perkins, Charlotte Grimshaw and others."--Publisher's description
