Description of this Electronic Book

Dunedin's remarkable literary heritage is founded on Charles Brasch, who presided over the nation's literature from his Dunedin home for many years as the editor of Landfall, on James K Baxter, arguably New Zealand's greatest poet; and on internationally celebrated novelist Janet Frame. It is an impressive record for a small city, and all three are represented in Christine Johnston's lively anthology of Dunedin writing. Also featured are works by well-known poets and memorists Brian Turner, Ruth Dallas and Alistair Campbell, and by a new generation of writers that includes Paula Boock and Emma Neale. This rich collection is a delight from beginning to end and will satisfy the most demanding reader.
