Wel­come back to the first is­sue of Can­vas magazine for 2019. In De­cem­ber, in our “peo­ple of the year” cover story, we fea­tured scholar Anne-Marie Brady, who has suf­fered a se­ries of un­pleas­ant and mys­te­ri­ous events since she pub­lished a pa­per de­tail­ing China’s for­eign in­flu­ence ac­tiv­i­ties. So lit­tle was known of Brady her­self — and like many aca­demics, she seemed to ex­ist en­tirely within the frame­work of her pow­er­ful and in­flu­en­tial re­search. But what of her personal story? What mo­ti­vates her and why won’t she ca­pit­u­late? Greg Bruce vis­ited her in her Christchurch home and she told her ex­tra­or­di­nary story.

Also this week, we start a new col­umn by Beck Eleven — Peo­ple and their pets. They are vi­gnettes, small love sto­ries and, this week, ac­tor Michelle Lang­stone talks of the bond she has with her cat Frances. They are pho­tographed by Doug Sher­ring.
