Maurice (Gough) Gee 1931–

New Zealand novelist, short story writer, and scriptwriter.

Gee, whose writings reflect a strong sense of New Zealand life, was little recognized outside of his native country until the publication of Plumb, winner of the 1978 James Tait Black Memorial Award. Plumb is the first novel of a trilogy that focuses on several generations of the contentious Plumb family. In addition to his skillful development of memorable characters, Gee has created interest in New Zealand's political and social mores.
