Ronald Hugh Morrieson

Writer Ronald Hugh Morrieson (right) performs with his dance band, which played in small towns across South Taranaki during the 1940s. Morrieson wrote four novels and two short stories; all except the first two novels were published posthumously. His portrayal of the booze-ridden subculture of small-town Taranaki did little to endear him to many of his fellow Hāwera citizens. His four novels have been made into films: The scarecrow (1981), Pallet on the floor (1984), Came a hot Friday (1985) and Predicament (2010).
