              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.

              How to Loiter In a Turf War: A Novel (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              • Reprinting

              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
