Five years ago, The Spinoff burst onto New Zealand's media scene with smart, screamingly funny and seriously relevant writing. Since then, it has enraged and inspired all the right people, respectably won Website of the Year at the 2019 Voyager Media Awards, and expanded into television, podcasts and now - shockingly - a book. Edited by Toby Manhire, it's jam-packed with The Spinoff's best work, along with full-colour artwork by Toby Morris, photography, collage, poetry and a clutch of new and exclusive essays. Simon Wilson, Jemaine Clement, Lorde, and Jesse Mulligan rub shoulders with Spinoff stars like Alex Casey, Madeleine Chapman and Emily Writes. From Shortland Street to sports, feminism to fashion and current events to Kiwi onion dip, this is an engrossing, original take on everything that matters in Aotearoa New Zealand in the 21st century. Featuring Toby Morris Hera Lindsay Bird Leonie Hayden Mich le A'Court Ashleigh Young Lorde Jemaine Clement Alex Casey Madeleine Chapman Duncan Greive Simon Wilson Aldous Harding Emily Writes Scotty Stevenson David Farrier ...and more "The Spinoff is where we find stories no one else is covering . . . stories we need to hear." 2019 Voyager Media Awards Judges "Right now, every left-leaning, media-savvy, university-educated hipster you know (and probably their baby-boomer parents) is reading The Spinoff." Sunday magazine "Crap and a waste of our money." Mike Hosking
