Author(s): Janet Wilson
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.
Janet Wilson knew Frank Sargeson from when she was a very small child. Her father, short story writer Phillip Wilson, was one of the 'sons of Sargeson', writers he mentored and particularly enjoyed. Now a professor of post colonial writing at Northampton University in the United Kingdom, Janet Wilson brings her special insights as well as her particular literary interests to her Introduction to Frank Sargeson's Stories.
