This volume examines the life and work of New Zealand author Maurice Duggan. His life was turbulent and difficult as he suffered from a "black Irish" personality, the lifelong trauma of an amputated leg, and battles with alcoholism, relationships and employment. This biography looks at the complexity of his life and offers a picture of literary life in New Zealand, and especially Auckland, in the 1950's and 1960's.
