Ngaio Marsh spent most of her life in Christchurch, despite long periods in England. A prolific and hugely successful writer of crime fiction; paperbacks, hardbacks and radio serials of her work amounted to a small industry. Yet Marsh was also a major figure in New Zealand theatre. The University of Canterbury awarded her an honorary doctorate in 1962, and named its new theatre after her. Other honours include the DBE, New Zealand literature’s first such award, and the Mystery Writers of America Grand Master Award.
