Description of this Book

Home is a classic Landfall 'Open House' issue, where anything and everything goes. Submissions poured in on every topic conceivable, and the result is truly a feast of good writing and imagination. Courtney Sina Meredith, Emma Barnes, Kay McKenzie Cooke, Tony Beyer and C.K. Stead (among others) offer up new poems exploring topics as disparate as the body, the corner dairy, 'cloud' technology, silent film stars and more. All make for exhilarating reads. Be enchanted too by a wealth of short stories: Alex Wild Jespersen's deftly humorous tale of a media studies tutor's first experience with girl-on-girl boxing, Vivienne Plumb's 'The Cabin Trunk', David Herkt's story set in the rarefied world of the uber-wealthy at the height of the financial crisis and Laura Solomon's futuristic piece about a Kiwi cult that breeds 'shumans' (sheep/humans). Nicholas Reid, John Horrocks, Peter Simpson and others offer up considered reviews of recent New Zealand books and Martin Rumsby investigates moving image installations. As for art, there's Anita DeSoto's otherworldly paintings, while Darryn George's unique blend of geometric abstraction and kowhaiwhai are present in both the portfolio pages and under discussion by David Eggleton in The Landfall Review. Poetry: Ruth Arnison, Philip Armstrong, Emma Barnes, Miriam Barr, Tony Beyer, Liz Breslin, Diana Bridge, Zarah Butcher-McGunnigle, Medb Charleton, Natasha Dennerstein, Janis Freegard, Alastair Galbraith, Alison Glenny, Caoilinn Hughes, Sophia Johnson, Terry Locke, Kay McKenzie Cooke, Genevieve McClean, Robert McLean, Robynanne Milford, Maris O'Rourke, Alistair Paterson, Vaughan Rapatahana, Reihana Robinson, Anna Rugis, Elspeth Sandys, L.E.
