    Author: IHIMAERA WITI & MAKERETI TINA EDS

    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.

    Title: Griffith Review 43 Pacific Highways
    Author: JONES LLOYD & SCHULTZ JULIANNE ED


    Migration, demographic changes and new cultural references are reshaping New Zealand. It is fast becoming a hub where Pacific and Tasman currents meet. As a result, New Zealand is changing, in response to surging tides of people and ideas.


    Pacific Highways explores and maps the new New Zealand, in the words of the country's finest writers, including Kate de Goldi, C. K. Stead, Bernard Beckett, Owen Marshall, Hinemoana Baker and many more.


    This collection of original essays, memoir, poetry, fiction and reportage will challenge the way you think about New Zealand. From reports from the Kiwi Diaspora in Australia, to a consideration of the growing Asian economic and cultural influence and the contribution of Pacific society to the arts and sports, this portrait of New Zealand takes you beyond the tourist brochures to something truly original.


    This edition co-edited by Lloyd Jones and Julianne Schultz, with support from Creative New Zealand.

    Title: Landfall 230 Aotearoa Nz Arts & Letters
    Author: EGGLETON DAVID ED

    Landfall is a place, a mythic place, a piece of valuable cultural estate, consistently representing over time the robust heritage of Aotearoa New Zealand arts and letters. Landfall 230 maintains the momentum, keeps the flag flying, and acts as a compass to home ground. The cover signals a turn to geopolitics and Maori land rights revisited, with Emily Karaka's colourful landscape painting of Tamaki Makaurau-Auckland as disputed territory, while inside, Landfall 230 proves to be a strongly multicultural issue, reflecting the diversity and energy of contemporary New Zealand writing, with contributions by, among others, writers of Mexican, Samoan, Rotuman, Chinese, Irish and Indian backgrounds. Landfall 230 is then a pan-Pacific grab-bag of the best we have.& Celebrating the power of the literary imagination with inside stories and true confessions, short fictions and thoughtful critiques, Landfall 230 is testament to the rich variety and dynamism of the current state of New Zealand culture.

    Title: Maori Oral Tradition: He Korero No Te Ao Tawhito
    Author: MCRAE JANE

    Maori oral tradition is the rich, poetic record of the past handed down by voice over generations through whakapapa, whakatauk?, k'rero and waiata. In genealogies and sayings, histories, stories and songs, M'ori tell of `te ao tawhito¿ or the old world: the gods, the migration of the Polynesian ancestors from Hawaiki and life here in Aotearoa. A voice from the past, today this remarkable record underpins the speeches, songs and prayers performed on marae and the teaching of tribal genealogies and histories. Indeed, the oral tradition underpins M'ori culture itself. This book introduces readers to the distinctive oral style and language of the traditional compositions, acknowledges the skills of the composers of old and explores the meaning of their striking imagery and figurative language. And it shows how ng? k'rero tuku iho ¿ the inherited words ¿ can be a deep well of knowledge about the way of life, wisdom and thinking of the M'ori ancestors."

    The Kapiti Lesbian Writers Group are ready to launch Midnight Feast, the long-awaited sequel to our first book, Out to Lunch,
    published in 2010. Midnight Feast includes stories, poetry and fragments of novels. In this diverse collection, we offer rich treats
    for any palate: dreamy echoes of the past, a 1950’s adventure on the road to Kathmandu, a smorgasbord of tales short and long,
    wry snippets and titbits from everyday life and a spine shivering futuristic story. The common thread holding the collection together
    is the lesbian lens that informs it.
    The writers in this 2015 collection are: Annabel Fagan, Robin Fleming, Terry Kennaway, Barbara Simmons, Kate Torrens and the
    late Pat Rosier.
    Midnight Feast is a collection of writing by six Kapiti women, who meet to workshop one another's stories, talk and share food. Stories, poems and fragments of novels have emerged from the rich and varied experience of six very different lives.

    Title: Mothers' Darlings of the South Pacific: the Children of Indigenous Women & Us Servicemen, World War Ii
    Author: BENNETT JUDITH A & WANHALLA ANGELA (ED)

    Like a human tsunami, World War II brought two million American servicemen to the South Pacific where they left a human legacy of some thousands of children. Mothers’ Darlings of the South Pacific traces the intimate relationships that existed in the wartime Pacific between US servicemen and Indigenous women, and considers the fate of the resulting children. The American military command carefully managed such intimate relationships, applying US immigration law based on race to prevent marriage ‘across the colour line’. For Indigenous women and their American servicemen sweethearts, legal marriage was impossible, giving rise to a generation of children known as ‘GI babies’. Among these Pacific war children, one thing common to almost all is the longing to know more about their American father. Mothers’ Darlings of the South Pacific traces these children’s stories of loss, emotion, longing and identity, and of lives lived in the shadow of global war. It considers the way these relationships developed in the major US bases of the South Pacific Command from Bora Bora in the east across to Solomon Islands in the west, and from the Gilbert Islands in the north to New Zealand. The writers interviewed many of the children of the Americans and some of the few surviving mothers, as well as others who recalled the wartime presence in their islands. Oral histories reveal what the records of colonial governments and the military largely have ignored, providing a perspective on the effects of the US occupation that until now has been disregarded by historians of the Pacific war.

    Title: Palemia: Prime Minister Tuila'epa Sa'ilele Malielegaoi of Samoa - A Memoir
    Author: SWAIN PETER

    Palemia tells the story of how a boy from an isolated village grew up to become Prime Minister of Samoa. It follows his journey from Lepa to Apia, Wellington, Brussels, Singapore, Beijing, Tokyo, London, New York and many other international destinations, always returning to Lepa and the Fa‘asamoa that shaped him.

    Tuila'epa Sa'ilele Malielegaoi is Samoa’s longest-serving Prime Minister. His premiership has been marked by political and economic crises, natural disasters, regional tensions and local challenges. Tuila'epa’s political career started during turbulent times but has resulted in an unprecedented period of political stability and economic development through his leadership in modernising the economy, improving education and health and reducing poverty in Samoa.

    Palemia captures the voice, documents the life, and places in context a record of the most significant Samoan political leader of this generation, and contains many useful insights into the social, cultural and economic development of Samoa and the wider Pacific region.

    Title: Some Other Country: NZ's Best Short Stories New Ed
    Author: MANHIRE BILL & MCLEOD MARION ED

    First published in 1984, SOME OTHER COUNTRY quickly became established as New Zealand's essential single-volume anthology of short stories, and has since been enjoyed by many thousands of visitors, students and readers of all kinds. Now this fourth edition adds four new writers, bringing the collection completely up to date with the diverse energies of New Zealand life and writing. The country to be found in these pages is not the place depicted in glossy picture books or economic profiles. But it is a real place, composed of that blend of accuracy and vision which only the imagination, committed to language and experience, can supply. It is the New Zealand of Janet Frame and Katherine Mansfield, of Frank Sargeson and Maurice Gee, of Witi Ihimaera and Patricia Grace. SOME OTHER COUNTRY is a collection of stories from the body of New Zealand writing that began with the work of the young expatriate writer, Katherine Mansfield. It includes well-known stories by major writers including Vincent O'Sullivan, Joy Cowley, C. K. Stead, Owen Marshall and Keri Hulme, alongside stories by writers who have come into prominence in the last 20 years, such as Barbara Anderson, Fiona Farrell, Emily Perkins, Damien Wilkins and Alice Tawhai. SOME OTHER COUNTRY represents the editors' choice of simply 'the best we could find'.
