New Zealand author, Fiona Kidman, wrote her autobigraphy in Menton (France) where she spent a year as ‘Katherine Mansfield Fellow’. At the end of Darwin Road is a personal account of the author’s life in Kerikeri, Waipu, Rotorua and Wellington.

Growing up, marrying, making friends, having children and her struggles to work as a writer during early feminist days in 1970’s New Zealand, are described very vividly.

A second book, on the next part of the author’s life, is planned, and I await this with interest.
