The Spring issue of New Zealand Books Pukapuka Aotearoa serves up a banquet of criticism, comment and well-wrought thoughts. Janet Wilson savours Fiona Kidman's new novel, Kate Duignan comes to Kirsty Gunn's party, John Horrocks raises a glass to recent poetry, and Michael Donaldson brings the Guinness.
