I was sitting in my office, managing the announcement of the new director of City Gallery Wellington, when a parcel arrived on my desk. It was from Random House. It was heavy; book heavy. I felt it up, shook it up and ripped into it.
It was the BOOK. I burst into tears (which is actually quiet embarrassing at work), because
a) it was a real book that I have written
b) it looks bloody amazing
c) it has been a big year
d) I am gentically predisposed to weep.
Anyway, wow, exciting and please book May 4 for a book launch.
Oh and the new director is Elizabeth Caldwell.
