About this title

Synopsis:

For two decades in Christchurch, New Zealand, a cast of extraordinary men and women remade the arts. Variously between 1933 and 1953, Christchurch was the home of Angus and Bensemann and McCahon, Curnow and Glover and Baxter, the Group, the Caxton Press and the Little Theatre, Landfall and Tomorrow, Ngaio Marsh and Douglas Lilburn. It was a city in which painters lived with writers, writers promoted musicians, in which the arts and artists from different forms were deeply intertwined. And it was a city where artists developed a powerful synthesis of European modernist influences and an assertive New Zealand nationalism that gave mid-century New Zealand cultural life its particular shape.

Simpson is the author of six non-fiction books, including Fantastica: The World of Leo Bensemann, Patron and Painter: Charles Brasch and Colin McCahon, Colin McCahon: The Titirangi Years 1953–1959 and Answering Hark: McCahon/Caselberg: Painter/Poet.
