Barbara Ewing on her coming of age memoir

From Saturday Morning, 11:06 am on 16 May 2020

New Zealand actor and novelist Barbara Ewing has written a memoir about life as a young woman in Wellington and Auckland in the 1950s and early 1960s, before she headed off to study in London.

One Minute Crying Time documents her early experiences of anxiety, fraught family life, and what at the time was a controversial romantic relationship with a young Māori man.
