About the Author
Keri Hulme (1947-2021): The Maori novelist, poet, and short story writer who became the first New Zealander to win the Booker Prize for this luminous debut novel. She grew up in Christchurch and Moeraki, New Zealand. She spent much of her time smoking a pipe or cigarillos, playing the guitar, painting, fishing, eating, drinking and cooking. She began two additional novels, each running to hundreds of pages, but they were never finished.
Reviews

"...a huge, ambitious work that aspires to portray the clash between Maori and European cultures..." -- The New York Times

"An original, overwhelming, near-great work of literature."
--The Washington Post

"In this novel, New Zealand's people, its heritage and landscape are conjured up with uncanny poetry and perceptiveness."-- Sunday Times (London)
