The publication of his acclaimed memoir First Things gives us a great opportunity to talk to Harry Ricketts about a lifetime of writing. Harry recently retired after a long and distinguished teaching career at Te Herenga Waka – Victoria University of Wellington.

Harry's work includes a major biography of Rudyard Kipling, a study of the Great War poets, many essays and reviews, and a stunning body of poetry.

Chaired by Damien Wilkins.
