              No Maori Allowed: New Zealand's Forgotten History of Racial Segregation (Paperback)

              By E. Bartholomew, Robert

              This is the story of New Zealand's most racist town. From 1952 to 1964, Pukekohe housed the only segregated Maori school in the history of the country. Tragically, hundreds of Maori infants and children died as a result of their segregation in slums where they were forced to live... on the edge of town. No Maori Allowed looks at what happened at Pukekohe and the extent of racial intolerance across the country. Using records from the National Archives and firsthand interviews, chapters cover the extent of racial intolerance across the country in housing and employment during the segregation period from 1925 to the early 1960s. Did you know that on 'K Road' in Auckland, shops had signs reading 'No Credit for Maori,' in Hamilton stores refused to let them try on pants, hospitals had segregated maternity wards and gave them less expensive cutlery, while many stores and major banks had official policies of not hiring 'coloureds'. When a New Zealand University Press insisted that I modify the text as it was too pro- Maori, I decided to publish it myself, because the true history of Maori cannot be censored.

              WINNER of the Miles Franklin Literary Award 2017 WINNER of the Dorothy Hewett Award for an Unpublished Manuscript WINNER of the Colin Roderick Award 2017 SHORTLISTED for the Prime Minister's Award for Fiction Professor Frederick Lothian, retired engineer, world expert on concrete... and connoisseur of modernist design, has quarantined himself from life by moving to a retirement village. His wife, Martha, is dead and his two adult children are lost to him in their own ways. Surrounded and obstructed by the debris of his life - objects he has collected over many years and tells himself he is keeping for his daughter - he is determined to be miserable, but is tired of his existence and of the life he has chosen. When a series of unfortunate incidents forces him and his sharp-eyed neighbour, Jan, together, Frederick Lothian has the chance to realise the damage done by the accumulation of a lifetime's secrets and lies, and to comprehend his own shortcomings. Can he finally build something meaningful for the ones he loves? 'In Extinctions, a compassionate and unapologetically intelligent novel, Josephine Wilson explores ageing, adoption, grief and remorse, empathy and self-centredness...The novel is also a meditation on survival: on what people carry, on how they cope, and on why they might, after so much putting their head in the sand, come to the decision to engage, and even change. ' - The 2017 Miles Franklin Literary Award Judges Comments 'Whip smart, full of unexpected moves and a wonderful cast of characters...a powerful and memorable read.' - Karen Joy Fowler 'Wilson is never at a loss for words. She wields the English language sometimes like a surgical instrument, sometimes like a weapon, but always with complete mastery of allusion and resonance.' - Gillian Dooley, Australian Book Review 'Josephine Wilson's paragraphs and sentences have a rounded shape, in contrast to the currently fashionable way of writing, which tends to jagged, broken sentences.

              The Less Said On Ducks, The Better (EPUB ebook)

              By Real, War of the

              This is the tale of the critters who reside behind the locked gates of a Botanical Gardens at night. It's the first formal offering from author/illustrator War Of The Real. The idea for characters like those in this book was hatched in a Cooktown (Far North Queensland, Australia)... public restroom. It all came together after the discovery of a permanent marker discarded on the bathroom floor, a fleeting inspiration and an unoccupied moment in an otherwise occupied cubicle. From then on, wherever the road led, the artist is always armed with his trusty Sharpie on the trail of bug-eyed oddities, smiling down from where they've been scrawled.
