This is an auction for THE OXFORD BOOK OF NEW ZEALAND SHORT STORIES, edited by Vincent O'Sullivan.

The definitive edition of New Zealand short stories, it includes some of the best by:

* Frank Sargeson

* Janet Frame

* Maurice Shadbolt

* Maurice Gee

* Joy Cowley

* Witi Ihimaera

and many others.

"At last, an anthology that does justice to the range and extent of short fiction written in New Zealand. Nineteenth-century writing, which is largely unknown, is represented by Clara Cheeseman and G B Lancaster, as well as by the more familiar Lady Barker and the itinerant Henry Lawson. In the earlier twentieth century Katherine Mansfield is followed by Greville Texidor as well as Frank Sargeson and Dan Davin. The middle years of the century exhibit a flowering of talent. Janet Frame, Maurice Duggan, and Maurice Gee, are all fine practitioners of the genre, while Witi Ihimaera and Patricia Grace are the strong voices of Maori writing. The past dozen or so year has seen an explosion of new writing, with talents as diverse as Owen Marshall, Keri Hulme, Barbara Anderson, and Peter Wells. This selection provides an introduction to the New Zealand short fiction that readers interested in the new literatures in English, as well as New Zealanders themselves, will find stimulating and surprising. The stories are accompanied by brief biographical notes and a glossary of Maori words.”
