Some Other Country : New Zealand's Best Short Stories

£4.99

Product description

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 Dan Davin and Frank Sargeson, of Witi Ihimaera and Patricia Grace. Some other Country is a collection of stories selected from the body of New Zealand writing that began with the work of the young expatriate writer, Katherine Mansfield. This updated edition begins in 1922 and ends with a story published in 1990. It includes recent work by Vincent O'Sullivan, Owen Marshall and Keri Hulme and stories by newer writers such as Barbara Anderson and John Cranna, alongside well-known stories by Joy Cowley, C.K. Stead and James Courage. It represents the editor's choice of simply 'the best we could find'. Good copy. Corners slightly bumped. Some age discolouration
