Expat writer Martin Edmond has a crystal clear memory of his childhood growing up in small town New Zealand, and he shares those memories with us in his memoir The Dreaming Land. Martin is this year's Michael King Fellow and while he's lived in Australia for years, he often writes about New Zealand. In The Dreaming Land, he writes frankly about his family and community life rural in New Zealand in the 1950s and 60s. The Dreaming Land is a BWB Books publication.
