Author(s): Hamish Keith
Legendary art commentator Hamish Keith returned to much-deserved national attention last year when his television series and accompanying (Godwit) book The Big Picture seized the imagination of New Zealanders. Keith's witty, revealing memoir, gives readers an insight into his well-lived, rich and immensely varied life. Whether as a confrere of Colin McCahon, the chairman of the Arts Council, husband of Oscar-wining film costume dseigner Ngila Dickson, bon vivant and accomplished chef or arch enemy of doddering bureaucrats, Keith has a dynamic personality and a trenchant analysis that makes him a pleasure to read. First published September 2008, Auckland
