Pakaru: Writing Family

Mitch Tawhi Thomas’ award-winning play Pakaru offers an intimate look at a nuclear family doing their best despite the pressures that society and history pit against them. Greg McGee’s novel Necessary Secrets similarly takes the reader deep into the inner workings of a family ruptured by addiction and tumult. Mitch and Greg talk with Whiti Hereaka on making tightly framed views of family life against the much larger landscape of humanity.
