              It is Saturday afternoon and two boys' schools are locked in battle for college rugby supremacy. Priya - a fifteen year old who barely belongs - watches from the sidelines. Then it is Saturday night and the team is partying, Priya's friends have evaporated and she isn't sure wha...t to do. In the weeks after 'the incident' life seems to go on. But when whispers turn to confrontation, the institutions of wealth and privilege circle the wagons. Sprigs is the latest novel from Brannavan Gnanalingam. His previous novel Sodden Downstream (Lawrence and Gibson; 2017) was short-listed for the Acorn Foundation prize for best fiction of the year. He is also the author of A Briefcase, Two Pies and a Penthouse and three other books published by Lawrence and Gibson.

              Morocco to Ghana. Overland. Three New Zealanders. Armed with a guide book and stereotypes. They go being warned of danger, poverty and war by people who had never been there. They end up embroiled in a civil war - but it wasn't really anything to do with Africa. Writer Brannavan... Gnanalingam has won awards and been published in all sorts of places: the Listener, the Dominion Post, the Lumiere Reader, and Salient amongst others. However, he has never been published by Lawrence and Gibson. All that is changing with his debut novel, Getting Under Sail. a tale of three friends and their road-trip through West Africa. Part-travelogue, part-picaresque, and part-confessional, the novel tells the story of three friends travelling through West Africa.

              "If the exact trajectory of the author of this book is extended via the present, linear direction then in 2029 the author will be the protagonist of this book. If the exponential trajectory of the author's first love is also mapped then this book will chart a future as clear as t...he arc of the sun. If all turns out as suggested then Easy Whistle Solo will be as much a tale of revelation as it is a novel. Oh yes!: it is easy to whistle by your self. You can whistle for an afternoon, or you can whistle for a whole life. Richard Meros found his tune and whistled his way to 49 years of a life left alone to over-zealous, but under-appreciated writing and escapist travel. When he meets the daughter of a woman who had consumed his love - aorta and all - he is thrust back into his compelling world of lust, confusion and absurdity"--Publisher's website.

              When Helen Clark failed to heed the logic of Richard Meros On the conditions and possibilities of Helen Clark taking me as her Young Lover in 2008 she also lost the leadership of the nation. But Helens error does not stand alone. In 2008, according to Treasury, errors in love not... only cost the New Zealand economy a whopping $600 million in lost productivity, but an immeasurable quantity of happiness. Amongst Aotearoas saddest of the sad is Richard Meros. Embittered blog postings from the Left made him fear for his safety. Like Salmon Rushdie evading his fatwah, Meros left his fixed abode for a life of freedom camping. Embittered, and with only a shonky laptop and a Toyota Townace to his name, Meros analysed Helens failure. His answer came in the form of the unassailable logic of free market economics: Helen failed to take Meros as a Young Lover for she was already contractually obliged to a monogamous relationship. To save such future errors, Meros claims, the National government needs to privatise love. Only the private sectors know-how and can-do, along with glorious technological advancements, will dissolve the nations heartache. The only problem: how can Meros convince the leader of the National Party, the Rt Hon Key, that the policy of Privatising Parts is what the constituency needs?
