A few months spent in an old kauri villa during childhood provide an opportunity for reading books by candlelight and listening to the call of the moreporks. A father whose leftist sensibilities offer a vision of a better world is among the characters who figure prominently in the narrative. A writers eye for detail makes this memoir a moving and beautiful story.
