Sport 9: Spring 1992
A searing first novel from a Niuean writer. It heralds the arrival of a major talent, a truly Pacific magical realism.
It is the story of Pacific Islanders in New Zealand, the 'land of dreams'. Here they find their culture stretched almost to breaking point between their ancestral homeland and the often hostile new land of K-Road and Otara. Alternatively brutal and lyrical, this is a book alive with the rhythms of Polynesia.
