Last week at City Gallery I was part of Book Club where we discussed The Interregnum edited by Morgan Godfery and published by Bridget Williams Books as part of their BWB Text series. BWB Texts are short books on big subjects by great New Zealand writers. The Interregnum interrogates the future from the perspective of the generation who will shape it.
I was really taken by this book, it’s fantastic. I was really grateful when Morgan agreed to record this chat with him about this collection of essays – how it came about and what it means to us in 2018.
Morgan Godfery is a writer and trade unionist based in Wellington. He is an online columnist for Overland Literary Journal in Australia and a regular book reviewer for Fairfax. His writing regularly appears in the Guardian and the Herald. He also appears on radio and television as a political commentator and has authored several academic chapters and lectured extensively on Maori politics. He graduated in law from Victoria University in 2015.
