The Best New Zealand Fiction: 3
Short Stories (ed)
Synopsis: The standard of New Zealand writing today can hold its own on the world stage. It also has a distinctly local flavour, depicting our landscape and experiences as well as our wry insights and tone. Coming from a variety of writers and representing the best stories written over the past year, this third annual collection is thoroughly entertaining. There’s love, lust, travel, murder, childhood memories and the trials of growing old.
