              In lieu of flowers, bring weeds. Elizabeth Morton's poems look unflinchingly at a raw and unstable world - the crash, the aftermath, the comeback, 'the black heat at the centre of things'. The poems in Morton's second collection are charged with a visceral energy. This is poetry ...as incantation: an intense, larger-than-life, tactile experience.

              White Ghosts, Yellow Peril: China and NZ 1790-1950 (Paperback)

              White Ghosts, Yellow Peril is the first book ever to explore all sides of the relationship between China and New Zealand, and the peoples of China and New Zealand, during the whole of the seven or so generations after they initially came into contact. The Qing Empire and its succ...essor states from 1790 to 1950 were vast, complex and torn by conflict. New Zealand, meanwhile, grew into a small, prosperous, orderly province of Europe. Not until now has anyone told the story of the links and tensions between the two countries during those years so broadly and so thoroughly. The reader keen to know about this relationship will find in this book a highly readable portrait of the lives, thoughts and feelings of Chinese who came to New Zealand and New Zealanders who went to China, along with a scholarly but stimulating discussion of race relations, government, diplomacy, war, literature and the arts. White Ghosts, Yellow Peril for some years to come will be the key general text in the field of the early history of New Zealand and China.

              Charles Brasch Journals 19451957
               

              Charles Brasch Journals 19451957 (Hardback)

              Introduction by Simpson, Peter

              This volume of Charles Brasch's journals covers the years from late 1945 to the end of 1957, when the poet and editor was aged 36 to 48. It begins with his return to New Zealand after World War II to establish a literary quarterly to be published by the Caxton Press. The journals... cover the first decade or so of his distinguished editorship of Landfall, a role that brought Brasch into contact with New Zealand's leading artists and intelligentsia. His frank and often detailed descriptions of these people - including Frank Sargeson, A.R.D. Fairburn, Keith Sinclair, Eric McCormick, James Bertram, J.C. Beaglehole, Maria Dronke, Fred and Evelyn Page, Alistair Campbell, Bill Oliver, Toss and Edith Woollaston, Denis Glover, Allen Curnow, Leo Bensemann, Lawrence Baigent, Ngaio Marsh, Colin McCahon, James K. Baxter, Janet Frame, Ruth Dallas and many others - are among the highlights of the book. Unmarried and longing for intimacy, Brasch also writes with great candour about his relationships with Rose Archdall, Rodney Kennedy and Harry Scott, revealing a side of himself that has not been known about before. Central to Brasch's life was the vocation of poetry. He writes movingly about his own work, and also about his love of nature and the outdoors, including lively descriptions of walking the Milford and Routeburn tracks. The book ends with his visit to Europe in 1957, which confirmed his sense that New Zealand had become for him 'a centre & a world'. A lengthy introduction by Peter Simpson and other editorial apparatus guide the reader through this engrossing material.

              In the early 1900s, 130 young Anglo-Indians were sent to New Zealand in an immigration scheme from Kalimpong, India. They were the mixed-race children of British tea planters and local women, and were placed as workers with New Zealand families. Jane McCabe here tells this compel...ling and little-known story, in pictures.
