Tony Eyre Shanghai


Creative non-fiction in the form of opinion pieces, essays and feature writing is my special interest. This website will feature my published writing that has appeared in newspapers, magazines and in e-book form. I have been writing from my home of 27 years – in Leith Valley, but have moved on and now (after a year’s interlude in a little cottage in Opoho) live on the slopes of Vauxhall overlooking the Otago harbour, Dunedin, New Zealand. Tony Eyre

      Thanks Tess. You may have to go and read John Llewellyn’s book “How Green was my Valley”. I have the DVD of the movie based on the book. You can watch it when you come over.

    Hi Tony
    What a treasure trove here – just happened to come across it. Can you tell me if it is possible to get a digital copy of your Springbok tour book? Did you get an email from me to you and Yvonne about a chapter I am writing on social justice in NZ? I sent it to Yvonne’s email address. Coming down your way in Dec, hope to catch up.
    All good wishes,

      Hi Mary
      Thanks for your comments. The Springbok Tour piece is available on Amazon.com and most other e-book sites for a small charge. However you can also access it free from the link on the tab on this website. There is also a paper copy at the Dunedin Public Library and the University of Otago Hocken Library. Other than those sources there are no other digital links. Received your email and will answer it separately.

    Hi Tony, Really enjoyed the coffee essay in the newspaper and reading about Yvonne’s ping pong. Very amazing. Great wedding photo and early Yvonne photos. Congratulations on the grandchildren and your brilliant writing. Hello to Yvonne.
