After almost 30 years, literary journal New Zealand Review of Books has been forced to close down after Creative New Zealand declined its funding application. The December issue will now be its last, and it is now seeking a new home for its online archive and for its teen review site, Hooked On Books.

Steve Braunias joined Jesse to talk about what the loss of NZ Books means, and he shares a poem from journal editor Harry Ricketts.
