Synopsis

This anniversary edition of Witi Ihimaera's Pounamu Pounamu celebrates the 40th year in publication of one of New Zealand's most seminal works of fiction. When Pounamu Pounamu was published in 1972, it was a landmark occasion for New Zealand literature in many ways. It was the first work of fiction published by a Maori writer, it was the first collection of short stories that looked at contemporary Maori life and it launched the career of one of New Zealand's best-known authors. The Pounamu Pounamu 40th Anniversary Edition features a foreword by Dame Fiona Kidman and a commentary by Witi Ihimaera on each of the stories. In these author's notes Witi looks back to events from his own childhood that inspired Pounamu Pounamu and the experience of writing and launching the book as a young man in the early '70s.
