              Like nothing you've read before, How to Loiter in a Turf War is a lucid, genre-bending, cinematic work of fiction from one of Aotearoa's most versatile artists. It's a day in the life of three friends beefing with their own city, Tamaki Makaurau. With gentrification closing in an...d racial tensions sweltering, the girls must cling to their friendship like a life raft, determined not to let their neighbourhood drift out to sea. Fast, ferociously brilliant, crack-up funny and unforgettably true. 'This book paints a picture of the Auckland I grew up in - when waiting for the 025 to town was a gamble, and the answer to the question 'where are you from?' was an essay, not a sentence. Like everything she makes, Coco Solid imbues this book with fierce intelligence, laser-sharp specificity and cosmic warmth.' - Rose Matafeo 'Sharp, funny and dope as hell, How to Loiter in a Turf War is another Coco Solid work of genius. With her piercing prose and expansive worlds, Coco has long been a life-raft for brown kids swimming against the whirlpools of urban realities, and this work is no different. Painfully perceptive, familiar and hopeful.' - Lana Lopesi 'This is one of the most exciting books I've ever read. A celebration and a challenge and an impressive work of art and intelligence.' - Pip Adam

              Hina, the Maori moon goddess, has 30 different faces to help illuminate life's lessons - a different face and a different energy for each day of the month. And with her changing light, new insights are revealed. This book gives us the chance to connect to the ancient wisdom of th...e old people, who reach forward into our lives, with each of the moon's names as their offerings. Their reminders are a source of strength in our strange modern world, where we have been stripped of much of the connection and relationships we need for our wellbeing through successive lockdowns. We now see just how important these things are! This book leads you through a full cycle of the moon, to consider 30 aspects of life. And lessons we thought we had learned come back around with each month's cycle and remind us of deeper layers and blind spots. And when we do find a growing awareness of place and harmony, there is a sense of release. A new kind of freedom starts to emerge, soothing our modern-day pain and suffering. This book is designed to open up our moon dreams, for a deeper affectionate connection with ourselves and others.

              Set in the heart of rural New Zealand in the 1950s, this is the tale of two men, Tamihana Mahana (known as Bulibasha) and Rupeni Poata, fighting for Maori leadership in sport, kapa haka contests and finally the first every Golden Shears competition. Caught in the middle of thi...s clash between two great clans, Simeon, the teenage narrator and grandson of Bulibasha, struggles with his own feelings and loyalties as the battles rage. First published in 1994, Bulibasha won the Montana Book of the Year Award in 1995 and is probably Witi Ihimaera's most well-loved novel. It inspired the 2016 movie Mahana.
