  • Back of His Head
    Back of His Head
    Raymond Thomas Lawrence was one of the great literary colossi to bestride the twentieth century. He turned his upbringing in conservative Canterbury and participation in the Algerian War of Independence into a series of novels that dazzled the world, and eventually won him the Nobel Prize for Literature. Seven years after Lawrence’s death, however, the four trustees of the literary trust set up to memorialise New Zealand’s greatest writer are facing rising costs and dwindling visitor numbers at the Residence. While fending off a self-appointed biographer, they find themselves confronting the secrets of their own intimate relationships with The Master.

  • Banquo's Son
    Banquo's Son
    Fleance is the son of Scottish thane Banquo, friend and then victim of the ruthless Macbeth. Ten years have passed since his father's brutal murder and still Fleance lives in hiding in the woods of northern England-his identity cloaked, his birthright denied. With sweet, beautiful Rosie by his side, he has settled into a simple life rather than one of power and prestige. But every man has his price. For Fleance is owed great things. The witches prophesied them to his father, and his father's ghost now demands vengeance. A callous murderer must be brought to justice and there will be no peace for Scotland-or for Fleance-until that day. Sacrificing his life with Rosie, he must steal unobserved back into his homeland to avenge the past and fulfil his father's dying wish. The choices Fleance makes have the power to change his life, his country-and history.

  • Barry Crump Collected Stories
    Barry Crump Collected Stories
    Barry Crump was one of New Zealand's most popular authors ever, selling over 1 million copies of his 24 books between the publishing of A Good Keen Man in 1960 through to his death in 1996. Though the reputation he gained in the wake of his turbulent personal life sometimes overshadows his literary career, he remains a superb storyteller, who perfectly captured the lifestyle and laconic humour of the rugged Kiwi outdoors man. His ability to craft a tale that is both moving and funny is superbly illustrated by the huge international success of the movie Hunt for the Wilderpeople, which is based on his book Wild Pork and Watercress. Almost all of Barry Crump's books are now out of print. This new volume of Collected Stories remedies that, by presenting five of his great classics in a handsome, hardback edition. The stories are: A Good Keen Man | Bullock Creek | Gold and Greenstone | Wild Pork and Watercress | Puha Road Barry Crump: Collected Stories belongs on the bookshelf of every New Zealand home, an important, highly enjoyable and often hilarious part of our literary heritage.

  • Black Marks on the White Page
    Black Marks on the White Page
    A stunning collection of Oceanic stories for the 21st century. Stones move, whale bones rise out of the ground like cities, a man figures out how to raise seven daughters alone. Sometimes gods speak or we find ourselves in a not-too-distant future. Here are the glorious, painful, sharp and funny 21st century stories of Maori and Pasifika writers from all over the world. Vibrant, provocative and aesthetically exciting, these stories expand our sense of what is possible in Indigenous Oceanic writing. Witi Ihimaera and Tina Makereti present the very best new and uncollected stories and novel excerpts, creating a talanoa, a conversation, where the stories do the talking. And because our commonalities are more stimulating than our differences, the anthology also includes guest work from an Aboriginal Australian writer, and several visual artists whose work speaks to similar kaupapa. Join us as we deconstruct old theoretical maps and allow these fresh Black Marks on the White Page to expand our perception of the Pacific world.

  • Blue Voyage and Other Poems
    Blue Voyage and Other Poems
    It was a man known as The Fisherman of Halicarnassus who invented the idea of the blue voyage. Exiled to the town of Bodrum in the 1920s, he used to go out sailing with the sponge divers, and soon realised that the coastline of south-western Turkey is a glorious cruising ground. -Anne French The Blue Voyage and Other Poems is a new collection by Anne French. The first in eleven years, it is confident in execution, elegiac in tone. A more comic initial section leads into a section of thoughtful but vivid sailing poems and then a number of elegies, laments and funeral songs from French's 'black notebook'. The final section voyages to Korea and includes some loose translations of poems by modernist Korean writer Han Yong-un. In their considerations of remembrance and writerly acts, these 'translations' aptly pick up themes introduced in the book's first three parts and round off the book nicely: 'Waiting / for the ringing of the bells announcing daybreak, / I put down my brush.'
