📙 No Fretful Sleeper: A Life of Bill Pearson by Paul Millar — free download


Outlining the career of one of New Zealand’s most distinguished fiction writers and sharpest critics, this fascinating narrative details the life and work of Bill Pearson. Beginning with his difficult childhood in a society dominated by the New Zealand working man, this gripping biography follows Pearson through his long and distinguished academic career, the penning of his one major and celebrated novel, and his momentous decision to trade a dental career for World War II combat. Touching on his time in London and the native “fretful sleepers,” this engrossing account is emblematic of the intellectual culture, left-wing politics, and growing acceptance of both homosexual identity and Maori and Pacific Island culture in 20th-century New Zealand.
