In this definitive collection by one of New Zealand's best-loved authors, Witi Ihimaera offers his personal choice of twenty-four stories from throughout his illustrious career.

'Ihimaera is an inspired  voice'
- David Eggleton, Metro

'One of our most important and influential writers . . . his subject matter, as much as his distinctive lyrical writing style, demand[s] attention.'
