Episode details

As you may know by now, this year I’m producing a series called Beyond a Joke where I speak with writers and other artists using something that has made them laugh as a jumping off point to discuss their work.

Anthony is an incredible fiction writer and you can read more about him and his work on his website

Anthony brought a painting as a starting point. A painting which also made me laugh a lot.

Anthony’s amazing book Home Theatre (Te Herenga Waka University Press) is available at most book shops and you can read more about it here

As well as creating the cover for Anthony’s book, Jonathan King also created a trailer for the book.

The last two writers have had author photos taken by Ebony Lamb. Ebony is an amazing photographer. She’s photographed me and it was a really nice experience. Which is saying something because I hate having my photo taken.

This is Ebony’s website.

If you need a photo I highly recommend talking to Ebony.
