Canoe in the Mist
Canoe in the Mist
Collins Modern New Zealand Classics 3 Canoes in the Mist has been selected as the third title to be released in this series, after Tripswitch and The Blue Lawn. With a younger readership, of 9-12, this much-loved classic retells the traumatic events surrounding the 1886 eruption of Mt Tarawera, from the viewpoint of two young schoolgirls. Lillian lives with her widowed mother at Te Wairoa, the village which acts as a centre for tourists who flock to see the famous eighth wonder of the world - the pink and white terraces. When Mattie, an English girl of her own age arrives with her parents, Lillian finally has an opportunity to join a tour party led by her friend, the famous Guide Sophia. But these are worrying times - the old tohunga has been prophesying doom and disaster, and when they travel across Lake Rotomahana, a mysterious canoe appears out of the mists - a waka wairua, or ghost canoe, and all who live in the shadow of Mt Tarawera are about to have their lives changed forever. An exciting tale of New Zealand's recent history, Elsie Locke's timeless classic has now been reissued for a new audience.

Carolines Bikini
Carolines Bikini
Art needs a sense of lack to bring about its own effects; where there is no feeling of need to make up a shortfall, there will be no work.

'Alright' I said, 'I'll try...' This is how Emily Stuart opens the intricately involved account of a classic love affair that becomes Caroline's Bikini: a tale of hope, passion, and the power of the imagination.

For they say, the story of love - or, rather, falling in love - is timeless, and that unrequited love is the most passionate of all. It's certainly a narrative that is, in its own curious and enticing way, as old as Western literature itself.

The moment Emily's friend Evan Gordonstone, a successful middle-aged financier, meets the glamorous Caroline Beresford at Richmond home, we are immediately immersed a whole new kind of world. Thus begins a hypnotic series of intense conversations set against the beguiling backdrop of West London's bars, fuelled by liberal G&Ts. From early winter to July's hot swelter, Emily narrates Evan's passion for Caroline - a former horsewoman and PR expert, and now mother, hostess, housewife and landlady - to the brink of his own destruction.

In a mischievously intelligent novel about desire, ambition, and friendship - about Petrarch and his Laura, Dante and Beatrice, Evan and Caroline - the acclaimed Kirsty Gunn explores the nature of courtly love in a modern world not celebrated for its restraint and abstraction.

Ready. Steady. Go!

Chinese Proverb
Chinese Proverb
Army veteran Hunter Grant thought he had left war behind in Afghanistan - a conflict that left him with physical and psychological scars. But finding an unconscious girl in the Northland bush and gradually untangling her story involves him in a war of a different kind in his own country. Hunter sets out to find and punish the man Dao calls Master, but he discovers there is more to this than enslavement. Before long he himself is being hunted by the boss of a drug empire whose sole objective is to kill Dao - she knows far too much. Protecting Dao and waging war while trying to keep the police from stifling his enterprise takes all Hunter's ingenuity and determination and exposes him to deadly jeopardy. He enlists his old army buddy Charlie and her helicopter to help, but things become complicated when Dao disappears.
