Every morning for the last thirty years, C. K. Stead has written fiction and poetry. Shelf Life collects the best of his afternoon work: reviews and essays, interviews and diaries, lectures and opinion pieces. In this latest collection, a sequel to the successful Answering to the Language, The Writer at Work, and Book Self, Stead takes the reader through nine essays in ‘the Mansfield file’, collects works of criticism and review in ‘book talk’, writes in the ‘first person’ about everything from David Bain to Parnell, and finally offers some recent reflections on poetic laurels from his time as New Zealand poet laureate. Throughout, Stead is vintage Stead: clear, direct, intelligent, decisive, personal.This is a sequel to the successful Answering to the Language, The Writer at Work, and Book Self.It includes every kind of literary journalism, including politics, education, and reflections on language and some of Stead’s laureate blogs which sit between criticism and autobiography.These are further perspectives on New Zealand’s literature and culture from the country’s leading critic.
