A personal account reviewing an eventful life and an amazing country. Following Once Were Warriors, Alan Duff wrote his hard-hitting book Maori- The Crisis and the Challenge in 1993. His controversial comments shook the country. A quarter of a century later, New Zealand and Maori...dom are in a very different place. And so is Alan - he has since published many more books, had two films made of his works, founded a literacy programme, Duffy Books in Homes, and has endured 'some less inspiring moments, including bankruptcy'. Returned from living in France, he sees his country with fresh eyes. Never one to shy away from being a whetstone on which others can sharpen their own opinions, Alan tells it how he sees it.
