Good news at last!

After the reported deaths of Arthur C Clarke and Anthony Minghella were clouding the day, it was nice to receive an e-mail from catsparx  that sent a sharp beam of sunlight through the clouds making everything so much, much better. Cat wrote to inform me that a mutual friend of ours(who we haven't seen in ages) has won New Zealand's richest literary award.

Well done, David Beach!


David is a wonderful poet (there are some samples of his work in a review of Abandoned Novel) and well deserves the accolade (and the money!)

(Of course, it's going to be difficult to contact him as I remember him shunning computers - an old fashion phone call may have to suffice.)

Here's his poem Parachute -from the Best New Zealand Poetry 2003

I remember him writing a Murder She Wrote Young Cat adventure story as a birthday gift for me one year. I wonder where I put it???
