From the Centre - A Writer's Life

Author(s): Patricia Grace

Biography & Autobiography

'We live by the sea, which hems and stitches the scalloped edges of the land.' Renowned writer Patricia Grace begins her remarkable memoirs beside her beloved Hongoeka Bay. It is the place she has returned to throughout her life, and fought for, one of many battles she has faced- 'It was when I first went to school that I found out that I was a Maori girl . . . I found that being different meant that I could be blamed . . .' As she shows, her experiences - good and bad, joyous and insightful - have fuelled what became a focus of her life- 'I had made up my mind that writing was something I would always do.'
