The Best New Zealand Fiction PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Best New Zealand Fiction free pdf Drawing on the very best of what our local writers have been crafting over the past year, this collection of stunning stories and novel extracts gives an invaluable snapshot of the state of New Zealand's current literature. It's full of characters as varied and lively as Tim, succumbing yet again to the lure of alcohol, the young fashion designer putting on her first show, and Xiong, facing yet another day selling kiwifruit. There are various places and times: from New Zealand today to Germany in 1933, to a dreamlike Arctic in a futuristic time. There are stories of pain and happiness, stories of love and hate. Together they offer a rich diversity, making up a perfectly honed, beautifully expressed New Zealand voice.

About Fiona Kidman

ABOUT THE EDITOR: Fiona Kidman has published over 20 books, including novels, poetry, non-fiction and a play. She has worked as a librarian, creative writing teacher, radio producer and critic, scriptwriter for radio, television and film, but primarily as a writer. The New Zealand Listener wrote: 'In her craft and her storytelling and in her compassionate gutsy tough expression of female experience, she is the best we have.' She has been the recipient of numerous awards and fellowships- in more recent years The Captive Wife was runner-up in the 2006 Montana Book Awards Deutz Medal for Fiction, and her short story collection The Trouble with Fire was shortlisted for both the NZ Post Book Awards and the Frank O'Connor Award. She was created a Dame (DNZM) in 1998 in recognition of her contribution to literature, and more recently a Chevalier de l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres and a Chevalier of the French Legion of Honour. 'We cannot talk about writing in New Zealand without acknowledging her,' wrote New Zealand Books. 'Kidman's accessible prose and the way she shows (mainly) women grappling to escape from restricting social pressures has guaranteed her a permanent place in our fiction.'
