Maurice Shadbolt was a major New Zealand fiction writer and playwright
Maurice Shadbolt was a major New Zealand fiction writer and playwright. He published numerous novels and collections of short fiction, as well as novellas, non-fiction, and a play. His writing often drew on his own family history. Strangers and Journeys then followed, a long, ambitious novel, both accomplished and flawed, which took Shadbolt ten years to complete.

Obituary: New Zealand writer who helped put his country on the literary ma. .The writer Maurice Shadbolt, who has died aged 72, believed that New Zealanders should tell their own stories, cherish their own myths and believe in their own big lies before they could stand upright in a post-colonial world. He was born in Auckland and started his writing career as a provincial journalist before scripting documentaries for the NZ National Film Unit. But neither job provided sufficient creative scope for a natural storyteller, and he soon began working with fiction.
Strangers and Journeys" won the 1973 Wattie Book of the Year award in New Zealand. Despite many varying measures of success, everyone fails really, and Shadbolt never gives the reader much hope for more. I loved "Stranger and Journeys" and, while I'm not qualified to make such an assessment, I think of it as New Zealand's "East of Eden". I read Steinbeck's classic last year so it was fresh in my mind when I started reading "Strangers" last April. The writing is punchy, consisting of short sentences and mainly filled with the dialogue of Kiwi blokes - understated and unelaborative. It works - most times there are more things left unsaid than said, even in 588 pages.
SHADBOLT, Maurice (Francis Richard) Nationality: New Zealander. Born: Auckland, 4 June 1932. Education: Te Kuiti High School; Avondale College; University of Auckland. Family: Married 1) Gillian Heming in 1953, three sons and two daughters; 2) Barbara Magner in 1971; 3) Bridget Armstrong in 1978. Strangers and Journeys, a loose and baggy monster of a novel which draws together many of the themes and characters of his earlier novels and stories, is essentially a contrast between the lives of two representative fathers and sons, and perhaps concludes a phase of Shadbolt's writing which began in the stories gathered in the first two collections.
