This ravishing anthology of New Zealand literature is a superb volume of this country’s major writing, from the earliest records of exploration and encounter to the globalised, multicultural present. The editors range across fiction and nonfiction, letters and speeches, novels and stories, comics and songs to collect the heart of our literary heritage. Through an imaginative selection and illuminating introductions, Jane Stafford and Mark Williams provide new paths into our writing and our country. The AUP Anthology of New Zealand Literature will be the indispensable introduction for years to come to what’s worth reading and why.
