Here I had a chat with Linda Burgess – she’s an author, journalist, script-writer…she has been a TV critic at The Dominion Post and on RNZ at the same time that I was a music critic at the paper and am a music critic on the radio and yet we’d never met. So as soon as I read – and loved – her latest book, Someone’s Wife, I knew the time had come: I had to meet her and have a chat. I’d read some of her other work too, by the way, I’d followed her words for years in fact. But now was the time.
We had a lovely chat.
I visited Linda at her Wellington home. She fed me. And then we sat down to chat about family and life and writing, about review-writing and response to criticism. And then, in and around that, about many things.
I really loved this conversation. And it was a great thrill to meet Linda, and her husband Bob. And to have this chat.
