Summary
"If all the world's a stage, then Alan Sayers has met most of the cast - from miscreants and murderers to hobos and heroes. Alan's career as a ground-breaking journalist and photographer has led him to dive the depths for gold and scale the heights for survivors. His determination, strength, compassion and sheer blood-mindedness led to a kaleidoscopic life filled with adventure, sporting greatness, tragedy and delight. He shares all of this in Deadline, a love letter to his daughter and an extraordinary record of a fascinating period in New Zealand history told by the ultimate good, keen man."--Publisher's information
