LEGACIES OF LOSS

The legacy of untimely death inform two profound pieces of recent writing: NZ writer, teacher and Families Commission CEO Jan Pryor has written the memoir After Alexander, centered around the 1981 cot death of her four-month-old son; awardwinning Australian writer Jesse Blackadder’s novel, Sixty Seconds, draws on the death of her two-year old sister in a swimming pool when she was 12. Pryor and Blackadder explore lives interrupted, the keenness of loss, and the resilience of family. Simon WIlson leads the conversation.
