On the back of his enormously successful biography - Crossing the Line - Marc Ellis presents a tongue-in-cheek look at the Kiwi male. Ellis will look at all species of Kiwi maledom - the archetype, the stereotype and the type(s) he has only just invented (but ones that many of us, albeit secretly,... read more

Blokes are enormously hard to buy presents for but this one’s a corker and with Father’s Day coming up, keep it in mind as a gift for younger Dads. Marc Ellis and Charlie Haddrell have drawn up a comprehensive list of every type of New Zealand man you will find on these shores along with their defining characteristics. For example, the Big Fresh, a fulla of Polynesian descent, usually very large and very hungry, loyal to a fault but requiring a close eye when on the turps. Or the Finkle - an effeminate and fruity homosexual fulla who has no ugly friends and will usually drive two door sports cars because he’s too weak in the wrist to drive larger vehicles. The usual suspects are there - Bogans, Cow Cockies, Scarfies -along with some new varieties - Waoris (white men who want to be Maori), Panda bears (corpulent fullas from the Asian subcontinent), Wodgewicks (thespians and self professed intellectuals) and many more- it’s very, very funny although not for the politically correct or those who are strait laced. Marc includes anecdotes of his encounters with the various fullas which are in equal parts horrifying and hilarious. Easy to pick up, a good laugh and clever with it - a book that’s just like Marc really.

Brilliant review- this was dad's birthday present this year and was a very successful one! Fun for both him and myself, couldn't pass up the opportunity to remind him what he is missing since his move to Australia!

Good Fulla

Thans Kerre - you're right- this is a great buy for blokes. So good to see some good old kiwi bloke talk in a far too PC world.

This has to be the funniest book ever written. Every page is a sidesplitter. Also has interesting facts and trivia. I am going to read it again. These guys are Brilliant.

Marc Ellis is such a good kiwi bloke. We need more humour in this country, we have become far too PC and I agree Kerre - a great gift for blokes
