The Listener's award-winning TV reviewer Diana Wichtel has provided us with so much entertainment and insight over the years that we tend to forget she's also one of our best writers. Not any more. Diana is one of the two writers  sharing one of New Zealand's pre-eminent literary awards - the Grimshaw Sargeson Fellowship. She's spending the four month long residency writing a memoir concentraing on the impact of the Holocaust on her own family.
