            Life as a Novel: A Biography of Maurice Shadbolt -1973-2004: 2 (Paperback)

            By Temple, Philip

            Through his fiction, non-fiction and international journalism, Maurice Shadbolt played a leading role in projecting New Zealand to the world throughout the second half of the 20th century. In Volume Two Philip Temple tells of Shadbolt's epic coverage of the W.B. Sutch spy trial, ...his journalistic probes into the Arthur Allan Thomas case and the Erebus disaster, and his involvement in protests against the 1981 Springbok rugby tour. He tells of Shadbolt's demolition of the myths surrounding the Gallipoli campaign with his ground-breaking play Once on Chunuk Bair and subsequent documentary work. He tells of Shadbolt's growing stature as a novelist which produced such works as the unique The Lovelock Version and culminated in his New Zealand Wars trilogy, begun with the now New Zealand classic, Season of the Jew. Philip Temple also concludes the story of Shadbolt's fraught personal life as, by the end, he had been married four times and been involved in many affairs. It is a fascinating but ultimately tragic story about a man who had become New Zealand's most well-known and controversial author.

            When you first told me that you gave me the name of our tupuna so that I would be strong enough to hold our family inside my ribcage, I believed you. Here you are. Here is how I saw you, trapped in your own amber. Now it's time for you to believe me. Toku Papa is a bo...ok that serves as a map of survival for Maori growing up outside of their papakaika. These poems look at how we take the knowledge we are given by our ancestors and hide it beneath our tongues for safekeeping. They show us how we live with our tupuna, without ever fully understanding them. This book encompasses a journey spanning generations, teaching us how to keep the home fires burning within ourselves when we have forgotten where our homes are. But have our homes forgotten us? 'This book sings a song of connection and disconnection. It moves between the light and the dark as all living things must, and it stretches back to our ancestors and forward to our descendants, while exploring the difficulties of loving those who we should be closest to. This is a searching and generous collection of toikupu that slow time to a trickle just to reach in and tap directly into the wairua.' -essa may ranapiri 'Ruby is an incredible poet. Her poetry is utterly deft and agile, warm and heartbreaking.' -Tayi Tibble, Toi Maori Aotearoa

            Danyl McLauchlan wanted to get closer to the hidden truth of things. But it was starting to look like the hidden truth of things was that nothing was real, everything was suffering, and he didn't really exist. In these essays Danyl explores ideas and paths that he hopes will m...ake him freer and happier - or, at least, less trapped, less medicated and less depressed. He stays at a monastery and meditates for eight hours a day. He spends time with members of a new global movement who try to figure out how to do the most possible good in the world. He reads forbiddingly complex papers on neuroscience and continental philosophy and shovels clay with a Buddhist monk until his hands bleed. He tries to catch a bus. Tranquillity and Ruin is a light-hearted contemplation of madness, uncertainty and doom. It's about how, despite everything we think we know about who we are, we can still be surprised by ourselves. 'McLauchlan is likely the most intelligent essayist in New Zealand . . . and this is likely to be the most thought-provoking book of non-fiction published in New Zealand in 2021.' -Steve Braunias, ReadingRoom
