Hamish Keith



Hamish Keith is one of sixty authors who attended The Press Christchurch Writers Festival from 4 to 7 September 2008.

Hamish Keith, art commentator, reveals in his memoir Native wit an insight into his well-lived, rich and immensely varied life. Whether as confrere of Colin McCahon, chairman of the Arts Council, husband of Oscar-winning film costume designer Ngila Dickson, bon vivant and accomplished chef or arch enemy of doddering bureaucrats, Keith’s dynamic personality and trenchant analysis make him a pleasure to read.
