              Mansfield with Monsters: The Untold Stories of a New Zealand Icon
                

              Mansfield with Monsters: The Untold Stories of a New Zealand Icon (Paperback)

              By Mansfield, Katherine; With Cowens, Matt; Cowens, Debbie

              Katherine Mansfield is one of New Zealands most famous and influential writers. While her work is well known, many will be surprised to learn that the accepted versions of her stories are often pale reflections of the original manuscripts. In the late 1990s, literary historian Dr... Marcus Walker uncovered a cache of partial manuscripts that revealed a side of Mansfield that her friends, family, and publishers had successfully hidden for many years. Mansfield with Monsters is the first time that Mansfields vision of the supernatural has been published in full a dream that she often spoke of in her correspondence with occultist Aleister Crowley and American author H. P. Lovecraft. Matt and Debbie Cowens are honoured to carry on Dr Walkers work, recreating Mansfields beloved tales as they were first written, complete with vampires, ghouls, and alien monsters. These versions will shock and delight those in the literary community who always suspected that there was more to Mansfields work than we had been led to believe. Mansfield once wrote, dont lower your mask until you have another mask prepared beneathas terrible as you likebut a mask. While we may never know Mansfields true face or fate, Matt and Debbie Cowens are proud to draw back the public mask of one of our most beloved authors to reveal the more chilling mask beneath.

              In 1837, on remote St Helena Island in the South Atlantic Ocean, Frenchman Francois Lelievre searches for the legendary willow tree beside Napoleon's grave. A tree in which he believes Napoleon's spirit is still alive, inspiring the noble ideals of the French Revolution - liberty..., equality and brotherhood. With cuttings from Napoleon's willow in his care, Francois journeys to Akaroa on the Banks Peninsula in New Zealand as a blacksmith aboard a whaling ship, and plants these slips in this new land during a time of conflict, as the French and British compete to be the first to colonise this newly-discovered part of the country. Around the same time, Marianne a young schoolteacher from England, sets out on a turbulent path via the new British colonies of Sydney in New South Wales and Russell in the Bay of Islands, that lead her to the same place, looking for her own sense of liberty. They both encounter and befriend a well-travelled and respected Maori man from Banks Peninsula, Manako-uri, who is facing his own difficulties and challenges as the newcomers plant their hopes and dreams in his ancestral land. Based on real events and people from our colonial past, this impeccably researched and dramatic adult fiction follows the lives of the main characters as they become entwined together in an intense story of adventure, love and loss. This novel explores not only an important chapter in New Zealand's history, but also the deep and sanguine forces that drove the early settlers and pioneers to leave the safe and familiar of Europe to etch new lives for themselves in the far-away, unknown and treacherous corners of the world.

              This collection by Jamaican-born writer, Barbara Paul-Emile, presents stories that focus on the vicissitudes of daily life as experienced by people in small towns and rural districts in the Caribbean islands. These tales deal with personal dilemmas, psychic crossroads, and social... issues as shaped by the legacy of slavery, colonialism and national sovereignty, the complex heritage of the region. Set in the lush landscape of the tropical islands, individuals struggle to find personal fulfillment, advancement and validation in relationships and in society. Mosaic captures the important subtleties and nuances involved in island-living and presents the varied faces of the islands in vibrant and compelling portraits which allow readers to engage with characters whose voices mesmerize as they share details of the dramas that punctuate their lives. Written in clear, fluid prose that mirrors a painter's brush, Mosaic presents a canvas of images and characters so colorful, so vivid and so evocative that it is undoubtedly a masterwork.

              "Wellington. The wind city. New Zealand's home of art and culture, but darker forces, forgotten forces, are starting to reappear. Aotearoa's displaced iwi atua, the patupaiarehe, taniwha, and ponaturi of legend, have decided to make Wellington their home, and while some have come... looking for love, others have arrived in search of blood. A war is coming, and few can stand in their way. Saint (lovably fearless, temporarily destitute, currently unable to find a shirt) may be our only hope. Tony, suddenly unemployed and potentially a taniwha herself, has little choice but to accept the role her bloodline dictates. And Hinewai, who fell with the rain? If she can't find her one true love, there's a good chance that none will live to see the morning"--Publisher information.
