During this time he has crossed paths with a diverse cast of characters, from Peter Mahon to Keith Murdoch, Peggy Guggenheim to Duncan Laing, Ken Gray to Billy T. James, Raymond Hawthorne to Bert Potter, not to mention Grizz Wylie, Janet Frames brother, Sicilian witches, Vincent van Gogh and writers, actors, producers and other denizens of stage and screen. For theatre, he has written both Foreskins Lament, which has been described as the great New Zealand play, and Whitemen, which McGee describes as New Zealands biggest home-made bomb. He also wrote the controversial mini-series Erebus, The Aftermath and much else for television, and has published the odd short story and sports column.

Tall Tales (Some True) is an unabashedly subjective account of that journey, and of the backstage mechanics of a particular writers life. It is a seriously entertaining attempt to answer the question writers get asked most often - Where do you get your ideas from?
