Brainpark is a wholly convincing experiment in the essay form. A core theme of disassociation of feeling (or truth value) and aesthetic effect is explored in a number of contexts - family, faith, art history, sanctuary - through 20 short autobiographical sketches, followed by a sustained investigation into the history, meaning and present uses of a red brick church building in Webb St, Wellington. Described by Ian Wedde as 'sophisticated, inventive, charming and intellectually playful. An intriguing structure, an engrossing read, a critically astute piece of writing and a mature accomplishment', Brainpark sets a new standard for the personal essay in New Zealand.
