About the book:

TE KAIHAU / THE WINDEATER: by KERI HULME Keri Hulme's first collection of short stories gathers together the work of more than ten years. Its twenty stories include the award-winning 'Hooks and Feelers', about a mother who has inadvertently maimed her child, and 'A drift in Dream', which gives a pre-bone people glimpse of Simon and his parents. Throughout, Keri Hulme experiments with language and the components of style, and reveals herself a writer of virtuosity and emotional power. WHAT THEY SAID ABOUT THE BOOK: o 'An almost dazzling array of styles that could have come from the pens of half-a-dozen writers, it frequently brings fantasy to the aid of the imagination. The components of style and virtuosity are formidable and reveal a great writer testing her literary muscles.' ---Michael King, Metro o 'Hulme achieves a captivating variety...TE KAIHAU/ THE WINDEATER is a brilliant book and essential reading...' ---Annamarie Jagose, Canto o 'An extraordinarily rich experience of the natural world. That this experience often includes unforgettable images of danger implicates the threat with wonder the bleak vision with the garrulous humour-a tone inimitable Keri Hulme's. ---Ian Wedde, Listener ABOUT THE AUTHOR: o Keri Hulme is of Ngai Tahu, Orkney Scots and Lancashire ancestry. Her first novel, the bone people, won the 1984 New Zealand Book Award, the Pegasus Prize and the 1985 Booker Prize, and became an international bestseller.
