Where the Day Begins - Martin Bettinger
Author: Martin Bettinger
isbn: 9781927213162

Martin Bettinger is a German novelist and short story writer. He spent several years living in New Zealand, principally in Golden Bay, and this collection of 61 'shortcuts' as he calls these short prose pieces, is a collection of writing that came out of this experience. In Golden Bay he found an intriguing mix of people: expatriates from many countries, mavericks, bach owners, alternative life-stylers and those down on their luck, most of whom were drawn to the Bay to build a new life. But so often he found that this land of promise provided no new answers, just another opportunity to make the same mistakes anew. Wry, laconic and deeply poetic, this is a fine collection of writing, brimming with the fresh insight that only an outside perspective can bring.
