              The Dream Swimmer, sequel to the award-winning The Matriarch, continues the odyssey of Tama Mahana, grandson and heir to the matriarch, as he assumes the mantle of leadership and, with it, his grandmother's battles with the Pakeha. But at every step Tama is thwarted - by deceptio...n and intrigue, and by the woman whose destiny has intersected Riripeti's and his. She is the enigmatic Tiana, his mother, the woman of no account. Ihimaera continues to dazzle as he negotiates this story of great breadth and breathtaking climaxes, combining the heart of his early work with the deft experimentalism of his more recent novels and short stories. At once an incisive character study and a deeply moving family saga, The Dream Swimmer is sure to enchant and delight.

              The Matriarch
                  

              The Matriarch (EPUB ebook – Main)

              By Ihimaera, Witi

              In keeping with his commitment to revisit his first five pieces of fiction, Witi Ihimaera has reworked the original text of this much-loved classic. The matriarch is a woman of intelligence, wit, beauty and ruthlessness, and has become a mythical figure through her fight to re...possess the land and sustain her people against the ravages wrought by the Pakeha. Priestess of the Ringatu faith, she has been virtually a law unto herself. In his search for the truth behind the legends surrounding the matriarch, his grandmother, Tama Mahana delves deeper and deeper into Maori history and lore to understand the mysterious sources of her power and ambition. Witi Ihimaera's prose is at turns lyrical and spare, sensuous and savage. Weaving fact with fiction, this remarkable odyssey into New Zealand history is a novel of stunning imaginative power. Also available as an eBook Winner of the Wattie Book of the Year, 1986 Runner-up for the Commonwealth Writers' Prize, 1987 'Witi Ihimaera's uncompromising masterwork . . . A profound and spellbinding character study' - New Zealand Herald

              The Parihaka Woman (EPUB ebook – Main)

              By Ihimaera, Witi

              There has never been a New Zealand novel quite like The Parihaka Woman. Richly imaginative and original, weaving together fact and fiction, it sets the remarkable story of Erenora against the historical background of the turbulent and compelling events that occurred in Parihaka d...uring the 1870s and 1880s. Parihaka is the place Erenora calls home, a peaceful Taranaki settlement overcome by war and land confiscation. As her world is threatened, Erenora must find within herself the strength, courage and ingenuity to protect those whom she loves. And, like a Shakespearean heroine, she must change herself before she can take up her greatest challenge and save her exiled husband, Horitana. Surprising, inventive and deeply moving, The Parihaka Woman confirms Witi Ihimaera as one of New Zealand's finest and most memorable storytellers.

              The Thrill of Falling: Stories (EPUB ebook – Main)

              By Ihimaera, Witi

              All my life I think I've been trying to find it again, that clarity, as if all the world's air were rushing into me and filling my lungs to the brim. And that sense of defying gravity before the thrill of falling. In this richly imaginative and compelling collection of longer sto...ries, Witi Ihimaera ranges across an intriguing and surprising range of styles, subject matter and settings. A young Maori girl fights for a future in the grim reality of urban New Zealand; a fond nephew pays affectionate, humorous tribute to his glamorous aunt; a Kiwi rock diva faces her past in faraway London; Moby Dick is fabulously reincarnated in post-climate change Antarctica; a dying woman recalls the giant tortoises of the Galapagos Islands; a shy boy from the East Coast makes an extraordinary journey with his famous ancestor, Tupaea. In these profound, often funny, always memorable stories Ihimaera again defies the expected to reaffirm his place as one of this country's finest technicians and storytellers.
