              Strait Men and Other Stories (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By Edmond, Murray

              These pieces are richly strange, often funny and poignant, full of memories and contradictions, magic and rationalism, romance and science. Reading them you climb over peaks and fault-lines, leap between realism and expressionism, negotiate mysterious deaths and strange obsession...s, and travel from Aotearoa to its antipodes. Stories are disputed and rights are stolen; danger lurks at the edges, sometimes in comic guise.

              "Then It Was Now Again: selected critical writing tells the story of a range of controversies, innovations, revolutions and disputes in New Zealand poetry, theatre and drama over the 40 years between 1973 and 2013. To do this 24 individual pieces from Murray Edmond's critical wri...tings have been selected and arranged. The cumulative effect of this volume is 'a good story,' a drama with a cast list including figures such as James K. Baxter, Janet Frame, Mervyn Thompson, Kendrick Smithyman, Front Lawn, The Topp Twins, Martyn Sanderson, Alan Brunton, David Mitchell, and Michele Leggott, among others. The intention of the book is to be provocative: provoking thought and memory and feeling. Edmond's voice is a "good one to argue with," and he proves to be an opinionated guide through debates about the efficacy of poetry, the nature of artistic revolution, the effect of political change on art, and the interface of social action and artistic practice"--http://atuanuipress.co.nz

              "Shaggy Magpie Songs is a celebration of poetry's potential - for drama and comedy, narrative and nonsense. Presented in four parts - Praise, Nonsense, Blues and Pop - the poems are at times jazzy and rollicking, at other times crooningly melancholic"--Publisher information.
