BWB Texts: Set One (EPUB ebook – 1st edition)

By Paul Callaghan, Maurice Gee, Kathleen Jones, Rebecca Macfie

A bundle of the first four BWB Texts by Paul Callaghan, Maurice Gee, Kathleen Jones and Rebecca Macfie. A moving selection of Sir Paul Callaghan's writing, offering eloquent narratives that will endure in this country's literature. Published on the first anniversary of Sir Pau...l's death, with a foreword by Catherine Callaghan, Paul Callaghan: Luminous Moments celebrates the life of a remarkable New Zealander. Widely regarded as one of New Zealand's greatest fiction writers, Maurice Gee has written virtually no non-fiction. The exceptions are the two exquisite childhood reminiscences combined here into a memoir in Creeks and Kitchens. 'I think ... I am going to die', the stunning chapter from Kathleen Jones's biography Katherine Mansfield: The Story-teller (2010), describes Mansfield's last days and death at chateau near Paris, the centre of a spiritual movement led by the mysterious Russian philosopher-mystic Georges Gurdjieff. Written over a period of two years, Rebecca Macfie's searing account of the Christchurch earthquakes, Report from Christchurch, traces the city's struggle to recover from the disaster and plan for the future. Published in association with the New Zealand Listener. BWB Texts are short books on big subjects by great New Zealand writers. Commissioned as short digital-first works, BWB Texts unlock diverse stories, insights and analysis from the best of our past, present and future New Zealand writing.
