This book is subtitled ’Journeys in a New Zealand Summer' and that would be a wonderful time to read it. Cartwright returned to New Zealand after an absence of 20 years as a music, travel and arts writer based in London, and started a journey through NZ using State Highway 1. When I picked up this book to read I thought I'd just skim through it - there have been a lot of books like this, haven't there? - but by the bottom of the first page I was hooked. This is a very funny, sometimes sad, but always astute look at our country as it seems to someone returning after so long. - Jan

The author is an Aucklander who has been living in London for the last 20 years. He has decided to return home and visit his family and travel NZ and see how it has changed over that time. It is a more political journey than Joe Bennett's book Land of Two Halves and is perhaps worth reading for that reason alone. Apart from the South Island only taking up the last third of the book and Nelson being unkindly treated, I enjoyed this read.
