Description

This popular series continues with a new editor, Fiona Farrell, who has scoured the country and beyond for a sampling of the best stories being written by our writers today. She has selected a variety of voices and styles, with vivid images as diverse as a giant turtle burying its eggs in the sand, children rummaging through piles of kerbside inorganic rubbish and an eel landing on a crisp, white shirt. There are moments of tenderness and revelation, humour and insight, each story reverberating beyond the confines of the page, staying with the reader long after its end. Contributors: Michelle Arathimos, Sandra Arnold, Ben Brown, David Eggleton, Charlotte Grimshaw, Eirlys Hunter, Witi Ihimaera, Stephanie Johnson, Tim Jones, Fiona Kidman, Sue McCauley, Paula Morris, Carl Nixon, Julian Novitz, Sue Orr, Sarah Quigley, Duncan Sarkies, Tracey Slaughter, C. K. Stead, Judith White
