    Geoffrey Corfield does not come from New Zealand. But he almost did. He once had a New Zealand “Permanent Entry and Multiple Re-Entry” stamp in his passport in order to take up a job in Wanganui but he never made it. They gave the job to somebody else. He comes from Canada, a country a bit like New Zealand (language, Queen, mountains, forests); and a bit not like New Zealand (size, no palm trees, no bird that can’t fly, ice sports). But why would somebody from Canada want to write a book about New Zealand history? 12 May 1979. I was in a Bed & Breakfast in Wellington and wanted to watch the F.A. Cup Final. There was another fellow staying there from Napier who wanted to watch the Cup Final too, so he took me along to a rugby club and to watch the Cup Final at somebody’s house. We’ve been sending letters back and forth ever since. (Also, I wanted to see if I could write a book about New Zealand history, and if anybody in New Zealand would like it.) This is the eleventh book I’ve written, and by far the most difficult to do. Because New Zealand involves a foreign language. And because New Zealand history is complicated. (You probably wouldn’t be interested in any of the other books. Except maybe the book on the History of Australia. And then again maybe you wouldn’t.) "Nieuw Zeeland An English-speaking Polynesian Country With a Dutch Name" is a MUST read as it has had the infamy of being rejected by non-other than that bastion of balance, Otago University.
