This is an auction for SELECTED STORIES by Patricia Grace.

"This book covers the whole range of Patricia Grace's work. The gentle stories from the Waiariki collection remind us of where she began. They blend a distinctively Maori use of language with the traditional forms of the short story. Later work contains a sharper edge and a harder political reality, reflecting significant changes in the way the author views her life and work."
