He has been awarded 2015's $100,000 Michael King Writer's Fellowship, which he plans to use to research and write a biographical study of four expat New Zealanders who played notable roles in world affairs between 1876 and 2005 and yet are little-known in their home country. He tells Noelle McCarthy about his plans.
