Journalist Adam Dudding’s father Robin was a leading literary light of his time, but he was also a deeply troubled man.
Dudding has detailed his family’s tumultuous life in My Father’s Island, winner of the Best First Book Award for General Non-Fiction and shortlisted for Best Non-Fiction at this year’s Ockham Book Awards. Nelson journalist and dad Charles Anderson joins him in conversation about writing, fatherhood – and how to get away with publishing your family’s secrets.
