Lloyd Jones is the New Zealand author of numerous novels, including the prize-winning Mister Pip. His memoir, A History of Silence, was published in 2013.
The reading and writing ecosystem in NZ is broken – and I blame myself and other writers of my generation who have not fought for its patch, writes Lloyd Jones.
He's the author of the lauded and prize-winning novel Mister Pip, but Lloyd Jones is even prouder of his son Avi, who this week was crowned winner of Survivor NZ.
