              Affecting and evocative, this classic memoir by one of Aotearoa's finest Maori writers is now updated with new material. 'This is a book of memories. Some of them are my own. Some of them belong to others. They are as true and as fallible as any memories-distorted by time and dis...tance and a writer's choice of words...' In the debut memoir that kickstarted a writing career that has spawned more than 20 books, including many award-winners, Ben Brown writes of a quintessentially New Zealand way of living that may not change the world or even ripple its waters, but is replete with meaning. Gathered from the tobacco-green valleys of the Motueka River where he grew up during the 1960s and 1970s, Brown's memoir is rich with a sense of place, of family. The strands of his parents' lives reach from Outback Australia and the hardship years of the Great Depression and World War II, to the Waikato heart of the Kingitanga and a re-emergent people, to a time and place where 'tobacco was king' and a small farm by a river was the sum of all ambition. Each story, each portrait, resonates with the dignity, warmth and understated humour of one of our finest poetic voices.

              Moscow, 1987. As the cold war begins to thaw, an extraordinary reunion takes place between one of the great novelists of the twentieth century, Graham Greene, and his old MI6 boss, the notorious Soviet spy, Kim Philby. It's taken thirty years and the beginnings of a new world ord...er. As the two men raise their vodka glasses under the watchful eye of Philby's last wife, Rufa, Ben Brown's compelling political drama asks whether Philby betrayed his friend as well as his country, and how much the writer of The Third Man knew about Philby's secret life. A Splinter of Ice was filmed on stage at the Everyman Theatre, Cheltenham, for release online in April 2021, before a UK tour.
