This is an auction for TE KAIHAU: THE WINDEATER by Keri Hulme. reviews:

"FIVE STARS!!! This is a volume of short stories - each a new read. It includes a prequel story to the Bone People, in a short about the origins of Simon. Hulme is such a talented writer, she can tell a story eloquently from a variety of perspectives. Here we see her write even from the perpective of a whale. Another example of her abilities to shift modes is keenly expressed in a pair of shorts in this volume, which tell of the breakdown of a relationship first from the man's perspective, then the woman's - and still make it feel like two stories. Fascinating; educational. Hulme is a refreshingly honest, extremely talented writer."

"FIVE STARS!!! This is a book with several stories. I have read the book about three years ago. I borrowed it from a library, but never saw the book since. The stories still haunt me though. I still dream of the king bait and thinking about the sheep makes me laugh. Though other stories like the one with the kite still scare me. The stories are beautiful and shocking and above all they really confused me (and that is a compliment :-). This book changed my view of life. I have no idea how, but the stories showed me the magic of life and the interconnectedness of all things."
