Colours of a Life: The Life and Times of Douglas MacDiarmid

Author(s): Anna Cahill


This biography is the lively, persuasive and colourful story of a talented bisexual man who had to leave New Zealand to find a life as a painter on his own terms. Now almost 95, still resident in Paris, he is oldest survivor of his extraordinary generation of creative New Zealanders, and perhaps a missing link -- the one who got away and slid under the radar for choosing to pursue a global career rather than a domestic living.


Douglas MacDiarmid died in Paris on August 26th 2020 at the age of 97.
