This is an auction for A MANY COATED MAN by Owen Marshall.

"It is the new millennium and Albous Slaven's life is spectacularly and irrevocable altered after he hangs for an instant from a power line. While recuperating he senses new-found gift; the gift of oratory. Driven to hold rallies throughout New Zealand, Slaven astounds and alarms the ruling politicians. He too is astounded and often bemused by the response of the tens of thousands who flock to hear him. But what is his message? Is he a Messiah, a political saviour, or an idealist who conjures up forces he can neither understand nor control? Own Marshall's A MANY COATED MAN is typically witty, eloquent and satirical. The lives of his characters are deftly and disconcertingly explored as he paints a vivid and often lyrical picture of a physical world that is startlingly, unmistakable New Zealand."

From the NZ Book Council website:

"Owen Marshall is a renowned short story writer and novelist, who worked for more than 25 years as a teacher before retiring to work full time as a writer. Many critics rank Marshall among the finest, if not the finest, of New Zealands short story writers. His novel Harlequin Rex (1999) won the 2000 Deutz Medal for Fiction at the Montana Book Awards. His writing has been extensively anthologised and he has edited several collections of New Zealand short stories. He has received numerous honours, awards and fellowships for his work and in 2000 became an Officer of the New Zealand Order of Merit (ONZM) for services to literature."
