It was written between 1956 and 1957 during her time in Ibiza and has remained in the Hocken Library archive since 1970.

It was published by Penguin Books New Zealand this year. About 70 people attended the launch.

Our journalists are your neighbours

We are the South's eyes and ears in crucial council meetings, at court hearings, on the sidelines of sporting events and on the frontline of breaking news.

As our region faces uncharted waters in the wake of a global pandemic, Otago Daily Times continues to bring you local stories that matter.

We employ local journalists and photographers to tell your stories, as other outlets cut local coverage in favour of stories told out of Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.
