Update on the ‘fiction’ page.
“Few New Zealand historians are as prolific as Wright, and fewer still have his command of events and developments in the country during the 19th century” – Paul Moon, NZBooks, June 2015.
‘Like [Michael] King and [Keith] Sinclair, Wright has profound knowledge of his subject and uses lucid prose to convey it…He is deeply interested in the why of things, in the complex interplay of environment, economics and personalities.’
– Fritz Logan, Timaru Herald, 21 November 2009.
‘Familiar places become much more fascinating and monumental as a result of Wright’s multi-faceted treatment of his subject…the extent of his research into the archives is obvious… We can discern here the true paths of human interaction in all their complexity.’
– Mick Ludden, Wairarapa Times-Age, 17 February 2007.
