Mark Twain allegedly said that “History doesn’t repeat itself, but it often rhymes.”
Certainly, the words of those who are making history comprise some of the verses in the never-ending poem about ourselves and our world.
Biographers and autobiographers, Margaret Hayward (Diary of the Kirk Years), Judith Collins (Pull No Punches), and Marilyn Waring (The Political Years) talk about political lives, their books and what they faced in public and behind closed doors.
Wrangled by Linda Clark.
