Reviews

Each book in this groundbreaking series is an anthology of writing featuring one of our major cities. Chosen with care by a well-known editor from each city, the selections are usually from works of fiction (short stories and novels), but extracts from writers' memoirs and some poems are also included. The writers are both contemporary and historical and all have either lived in or visited the city concerned. All the extracts have something significant to say about the character of the city, and together they create a strong picture of what makes the city the unique place it is. Most of New Zealand's great writers are represented in the series. Each book is presented in an attractive cased and jacketed format. They can be dipped into at leisure or given to friends as a splendid memento of the city. The pictures on the jackets were specially commissioned from Christchurch born and Wellington-based artist Jacqueline Henderson, whose work is included in many private and corporate collections.
