              Goblin Market: 2016 Short Film Edition (Paperback)

              Christina Rossetti's 19th century masterpiece, Goblin Market, is a dark, allegorical fairy tale about two sisters, Laura and Lizzie, which explores the universal themes of eroticism and desire, addiction and betrayal, sisterhood, sacrifice and, ultimately, liberation. Our film re...-imagines the poem in a contemporary setting, with a modern day seduction in a drug-infused underground club. When this ends in betrayal, Laura dwindles in a pall of withdrawal and despair. Desperate to comfort her sister, Lizzie sets out to procure the drug she craves, but instead finds herself on a wild headland overlooking a boundless sea. Here the goblins await her. Lizzie is drawn into their bacchanal, discovering and fully embodying her own sensual power. Triumphant, she returns having won the fiery antidote to Laura's poison, and then watches as she fits and writhes, not knowing whether it has saved or killed her. But the next morning, entangled, both women wake as from a dream - to begin anew. Crossing the world to its antipodal point, our film draws both from its roots and from the spirits of this land on which we stand, to bring to life Rossetti's mythic, feminist anthem. One which speaks to the power of women, united - with each other and with our own essential nature, our wildness and eros - to uplift ourselves, and one another.

              "Their dreams of parenthood dashed, Harvey and Isobel go for dream jobs instead. Harvey hangs up his stethoscope to become a cartoonist and Isobel takes a promotion at the local museum. Then an abandoned baby comes up for adoption, and Harvey and Isobel discover a family is more ...work than they bargained for. By Fleur's eighth birthday it's all come together nicely, but that's before a voice from the past threatens to nuke their hard-won happiness. Harvey doesn't stop to think. He acts, and with tragic consequences. Strip is an intriguing drama that explores how far good people will go to protect the people they love, and asks: Is it possible to love too much?"--Back cover.

              I don't like poems I can't understand, and you won't find any riddles in mine' so said the back cover of Pete's first collection, It's Your Dad, and he certainly started the way he means to go on. The poetry and prose in Buddy's Brother is straight-up, in your face, and open-hear...ted, and covers Pete's usual preoccupations: life and death, tennis and bad backs, dogs and walking. This time he writes of a beautiful but gruelling walk along the South West Coast Path in Britain a walkway that's as long as our North Island, and tells of cycling across India and down through New Zealand in a trip that eventually introduces him to his wife. As with his last book, Pete also spends time trying to get to grips with a dad, this time it's not his own but his wife's. He's called Colin, and he's Buddy's Brother.

              In New Sea Land, Tim Jones tells the intimate story of the land and the sea. Awarded the New Zealand Society of Authors' Janet Frame Memorial Award for Literature, he writes of the mapping and re-naming of land and sea by those who came before him, and the places he travelled as ...a child and knows as a man and travels now. Some that crumbled to bone when the Earth heaved, some the stuff of myth and some the stuff of nightmare. And the poems imagine what the marriage of land and sea could become as one rises up to take the other away.

              "A coracle is a small boat of wickerwork but in the poems of Anglican priest Peter Stuart it becomes the ribs of a dying man, and the means by which another makes his way into the next life, having kept vigil at 'eternity's rim'. A coracle is also a kayak taking Peter and his wif...e, Julia, into Okarito Lagoon and the beauty of the natural world which - on the wings of the kotuku - carries the reader eventually to the white robes of the monks at Kopua, and further to the white invasion of an aboriginal sacred site and a barbecue at Auschwitz with a bunch of money changers. For these poems are angry, too, and political, and take delight in the joyous and sensual. A singular first collection that poses as many questions as it answers"--Front cover flap.
