|Tell You What (v3 Great New Zealand Nonfiction 2017)
In Stock: 4
|A third great instalment of New Zealand nonfiction curated by two of our sharpest readers.
Into the bush, out on the street and all the way to the bottom of the sea, from marae to motorway to mausoleum, this third collection of New Zealand’s best new nonfiction writing heads off in pursuit of home, history and hard truths. Unfamiliar landscapes – Iceland, Middle Earth, Westminster Abbey – mingle with familiar sensations – an old song, the chlorine tang of a swimming pool, the taste of koko alaisa. Tell You What: 2017 bears witness to the range and craft of our very best writers as they show us how we live, where, and why.
Featuring the prose stylings of Greg Bruce, Dylan Cleaver, Adam Dudding, Amber Esau, Sylvia Giles, Tom Goulter, Charlotte Grimshaw, David Haywood, Dylan Horrocks, Ali Ikram, Lynn Jenner, Nic Low, Maria McMillan, Moana Maniapoto, Selina Tusitala Marsh, Talia Marshall, Toni Nealie, Jane Phare, Jenni Quilter, Sistar Six, Tracey Slaughter, Rosabel Tan, Giovanni Tiso, Kennedy Warne, Rebekah White and Ashleigh Young.
'With the arrival of the second volume of Tell You What, the sum total of New Zealand non-fiction anthologies damn near doubles,' noted the Sunday Star-Times when they picked up last year's edition. Well, we thought, let's damn near triple it. Because we've discovered that New Zealanders love their true stories. Last year's Tell You What was 'quite a ride ...a gripping, thought provoking and inspiring reminder of how much talent is out there' (KiaOra), featuring 'some of New Zealand's best writers, covering subjects like bullies, Barbies, girl bands and grandads' (The Australian Women's Weekly). 'Take it and read it, as, one by one, each writer tells us their what' wrote John Campbell in the foreword. And this year? Third time lucky we say. The talent is assembling. The stories are rolling in. The 2017 edition of Tell You What once again promises an intellectually stimulating summer for New Zealanders up and down the country.
