The New Zelaland Revioew of Books Pukapuka Aotearoa 125th issue
Zealand Review of Books Pukapuka Aotearoa has just published its 125th
issue, with a glorious purple cover to herald its change of name.
As usual, it’s chockablock with incisive, informative, surprising
reviews of books
written and published right here – including Anne Kennedy's new novel,
Philip Temple's biography of Maurice Shadbolt, and Christopher Pugsley's
account of the battle of Le Quesnoy.
There are also two superb essays, on the representation of homosexuality
in biography and the perils of proper referencing. But wait, there's more:
poetry, YA fiction, theology and sport. Something for every reader.
