Description of this Book

Based on the hugely popular Facebook page 'Shit Towns of New Zealand' this is a detailed catalogue of shit towns and cities across Aotearoa. Naturally, the first volume was received as a literary masterpiece, taking home the prestigious Poolitzer Prize, the Poobody Award and the Nobel Prize for Shiterature.

Author's Bio

Rick Furphy and Geoff Rissole are two of Australasia's leading self-appointed experts on sociology, travel and culture. After cutting their teeth as investigative reporters for regional newspapers such as the Asbestos Times and the Gawler Growler, Furphy and Rissole released their bestselling debut Sh*t Towns of New Zealand, which won the Poolitzer Prize, the Poobody Award and the Nobel Prize for Shiterature.
