On 25 April 1945 New Zealand writer and soldier John Mulgan, 33, took his own life. Born 100 years ago, Mulgan is remembered for his 1939 novel Man Alone, and a war memoir, Report on Experience. Associate Professor Peter Whiteford from Victoria University has painstakingly reviewed Mulgan's letters to publish the first collection of his correspondence.
