              Aotearoa's young writers pour their minds and hearts into stories, poems, graphic arts and reflections that make up this rich volume. From familiar New Zealand landscapes to surreal imaginings, these offerings demonstrate a remarkable resilience in the face of what has been yet a...nother difficult year. There is displacement and ambivalence, even grief. The darkness lurks here: these writers have, after all, grown up in our post-everything century. And yet in these pages you will find humour and perspective, a sense of the absurd and the joyous. If these young writers represent the future, we can be reassured by their sense of reality that also holds a thread of kindness, of hope, of looking ahead. Discover "a world alive, where it all begins."

              the everrumble: a small novel in small forms (Paperback)

              By Elvy, Michelle

              • RRP: $27.99

              The everrumble is a poetic imagining of intense focus and sweeping ideas. Zettie's story is fluid and in motion, transcending geographies and time. She stops talking, at age seven, and starts to listen - to the worlds she finds in language and books, and to the people and places ...she encounters as she moves across continents. Her silence connects her to people, to nature and to the elemental world. Magical and beyond boundaries, this collection focuses on small fragments, taking Zettie, and the reader, inevitably to the place where human history began.

              A Literary Milestone! Death in a Raincoat is the 20th collection in the acclaimed Re-Draft series bringing together contributions from 88 sparkling young Aotearoa New Zealand writers. Passionate, moving, lively and always engaged, Death in a Raincoat is testimony to one of ...the strangest years in recent history, the year of the pandemic, of lockdowns, floods, fires and a major change in the political landscape. The writers selected have negotiated this strange year with imagination, exuberance and resilience. Their stories, poems and graphic art will at times delight, and intrigue; they range from the deeply moving to the laugh-out-loud funny, from open-eyed honesty to absurdist whimsy. This is yet another bumper crop from the best young writers of today, many of whom will be our major writers of tomorrow.
