              Taukiri was born into sorrow. Aue can be heard in the sound of the sea he loves and hates, and in the music he draws out of the guitar that was his father's. It spills out of the gang violence that killed his father and sent his mother into hiding, and the shame he feels about ab...andoning his eight-year-old brother to a violent home.

              I am Tuhoe / Ngapuhi. I was born in Marton in 1963 and raised there till I was seventeen years old. My family moved to Palmerston North for work and that's where we have been ever since. My usual employment is as a supervisor in civil construction. As a child I was generally obli...vious to events happening around me and didn't really wake up to other people's auras till later in life. My nanny called it selfish. I just think I was half asleep. So five kids, five step-kids and two husbands later, I have become more aware and am full of the need to redeem myself to those that didn't understand me, to those that pissed me off, to those that I pissed off, and to those members of my family who needed me but I wasn't there. I wrote some stories with trepidation, for in writing them I was opening secrets. I wrote some as a way of sharing memories with those that have grown up hearing about the whanau but have never met or don't remember them, and I wrote others because they were worth writing. I write because I find it cleansing. Writing stories is easier for me than regaling them, setting them down on paper makes sure their content doesn't get mixed up when someone else repeats them. I write because my stories bruise my brain until they're written. They fell out of my fingers one day after I had been nostalgic remembering my childhood and my aunties, my nanny and my koro, and all my cousins.

              Like so many people her age, Harriet threw her thoughts down on a blog. However, her reasons for writing were different from her friends, and it was clear from the outset that she was a writer first and foremost. The Book of Hat captivates the reader with its facility for express...ing everything from the ordinary stuff of life to the almost unspeakable. And part of its charm for readers young and old is the author's ability to find happiness and good luck wherever she looks. This is one of the year's surprising reads: an upbeat book about living with cancer.
