News from AUP
First up for 2013: Home in the Howling Wilderness which, said Kathryn Ryan on ‘Nine to Noon’, ‘has captured the harsh struggles as well as some of the romance of European settlers carving out a backbreaking living in the untamed landscape of the South Island.’ Hear her full extended interview with author Peter Holland here.
The next title out of the blocks, will be an eagerly awaited collection of new poems from C. K. Stead, all written since his award-winning Collected Poems was published. The Yellow Buoy: Poems 2007-2012 will be available mid-month and launched on 20 February at Arcadia Bookshop.
