Fresh Fields More Writing from Out of Town
Edited by John Gordon

As John Gordon's bestselling anthology 'Out of Town' demonstrated, New Zealand has a rich heritage of writing from and about the countryside. In this companion volume Gordon has once again mustered an impressive and memorable selection of poetry and prose, proving that our rural writers are as prolific, evocative and entertaining as ever. Many of the pieceds in FRESH FIELDS describe a different kind of farming. These are the experiences and observations of a generation that has suffered seasons of drought, seen traders leave and fly-by-nighters hover and watched prices drop as coasts rose. The resulting rural communities leaner, meaner and, perhaps, greener than before. The poetry and prose that make up this very personal selection continue a strong New Zealand tradition of describing and celebrating rural life. Once, farming was about settlement and development; for many, in more recent times, it has been about survival. Their words take readers into fresh fields of writing that are as satisfying moving and humorous as the literary landscape of earlier days.
