              From life growing up in New Zealand's remotest family to extreme, globe-trotting adventures Chris Long grew up in New Zealand's remotest family, two days' hike from the nearest road. While the media decried Chris's parents for raising him outside of society, Chris remembers a ric...h and idyllic childhood living off the land, learning resourcefulness and courage. At age 17, Chris left Gorge River - the hardest decision of his life. He's now 29. In that time he's travelled to over 60 countries, from the Arctic to Antarctica. In this two-part book, Chris first tells the story of growing up at Gorge River, followed by the story of how his upbringing equipped him to take on extreme adventures around the world.

              "I'll be grand, girl, I've great faith." - Mammy, just before she died Funny, charismatic and generous; angry, vicious and hurt; in pub lounges all over Cork City, Noelle McCarthy's mother Carol rages against her life and everything she's lost. As soon as she can, Noelle runs awa...y. All the way to New Zealand, to make a new, different kind of life. But then Mammy gets sick, and it's time to face everything that's waiting back home. From Catholic Ireland in the '70s, '80s and '90s to sparkling Auckland in the first years of the new millennium, Grand is a story of the invisible ties that bind us, of bitter legacies handed down through the generations, and of the leap of faith it takes to change them. "Derry Girls meets An Angel at My Table is an improbable combination. Yet here it is, and it is perfect. Desperately funny, hysterically sad, so beautiful and so humane. All of life is in it. I utterly adored it. - MEG MASON, AUTHOR OF SORROW AND BLISS "In this stunning reckoning with demons, McCarthy's mammy, Carol, lands on the page with a hilarious, indelible, appalling vivacity, stealing every scene. The trajectory of their relationship - intense, literally tooth and claw, barely survivable - takes them, in the nick of time, to something fierce and unbreakable. Grand will have you reassessing the power of love; the deep and painful channels it can cut." - DIANA WICHTEL, AUTHOR OF DRIVING TO TREBLINKA "A howl of anguish and love." - STEVE BRAUNIAS "Noelle McCarthy writes with wit, honesty and grace of that once-in-a-lifetime reality check for daughters - the dying of the mother." - REN E

              Being in quarantine sounds like being in prison, I said, shivering. Lily nodded. A bit like that. Except that the prison is your own home. It might sound familiar in 2021, but this is New Zealand in 1936-37. The disease is infantile paralysis, or polio, and nobody knows where it ...will strike next. When even the adults are afraid, Tom finds refuge in his dream-to run in the Olympics like his hero, Olympic champion Jack Lovelock. But it's the strength of some people closer to home that provide his biggest inspiration.
