Great NZ Non-Fiction

Editors: Susanna Andrew & Jolisa Gracewood
Auckland University Press, $29.99

A third great instalment of New Zealand nonfiction curated by two of our sharpest readers.

Into the bush, out on the street and all the way to the bottom of the sea, from marae to motorway to mausoleum, this third collection of New Zealand’s best new nonfiction writing heads off in pursuit of home, history and hard truths. Unfamiliar landscapes – Iceland, Middle Earth, Westminster Abbey – mingle with familiar sensations – an old song, the chlorine tang of a swimming pool, the taste of koko alaisa. Tell You What: 2017 bears witness to the range and craft of our very best writers as they show us how we live, where, and why.

Featuring the prose stylings of Charlotte Grimshaw, Moana Maniapoto, Selina Tusitala Marsh, Ashleigh Young,  Greg Bruce, Dylan Cleaver, Adam Dudding, Amber Esau, Toni Nealie, Sylvia Giles, Tom Goulter, Six, Tracey Slaughter, David Haywood, Lynn Jenner, Nic Low, Maria McMillan, Talia Marshall, Jane Phare, Jenni Quilter, Rosabel Tan, Giovanni Tiso, Kennedy Warne, Ali Ikram, Rebekah White and Dylan Horrocks.

About the editors:
Writer, reviewer and literary editor Jolisa Gracewood likes bikes and is a benefactor of trees. Susanna Andrew thinks and writes about books for Metro magazine, as well as working part time for Unity Books.
