Striding Both Worlds by Melissa Kennedy Book Resume:
"Striding Both Worlds "illuminates European influences in the fiction of Witi Ihimaera, Aotearoa New Zealand s foremost M ori writer, in order to question the common interpretation of M ori writing as displaying a distinctive M ori world-view and literary style. Far from being discrete endogenous units, all cultures and literatures arise out of constant interaction, engagement, and even friction. Thus, M ori culture since the 1970s has been shaped by a long history of interaction with colonial British, Pakeha, and other postcolonial and indigenous cultures. M ori sovereignty and renaissance movements have harnessed the structures of European modernity, nation-building, and, more recently, Western global capitalism, transculturation, and diaspora contexts which contest New Zealand bicultural identity, encouraging M ori to express their difference and self-sufficiency. Ihimaera s fiction has been largely viewed as embodying the specific values of M ori renaissance and biculturalism. However, Ihimaera, in his techniques, modes, and themes, is indebted to a wider range of literary influences than national literary critique accounts for. In taking an international literary perspective, this book draws critical attention to little-known or disregarded aspects such as Ihimaera s love of opera, the extravagance of his baroque lyricism, his exploration of fantasy, and his increasing interest in taking M ori into the global arena. In revealing a broad range of cultural and aesthetic influences and inter-references commonly seen as irrelevant to contemporary M ori literature, "Striding Both Worlds "argues for a hitherto frequently overlooked and undervalued depth and complexity to Ihimaera s imaginary. The present study argues that an emphasis on difference tends to lose sight of fiction s capacity to appreciate originality and individuality in the polyphony of its very form and function. In effect, literary negotiation of M ori sovereign space takes place in its forms rather than in its content: the uniqueness of M ori literature is found in the way it uses the common tools of literary fiction, including language, imagery, the text s relationship to reality, and the function of characterization. By interpeting aspects of Ihimaera s oeuvre for what they share with other literatures in English, "Striding Both Worlds "aims to present an additional, complementary approach to M ori, New Zealand, and postcolonial literary analysis."
Tropes and Territories by Marta Dvorak,W.H. New Book Resume:
Tropes and Territories demonstrates how current debates in postcolonial criticism bear on the reading, writing, and status of short fiction. These debates, which hinge on competing definitions of "trope" (motif vs rhetorical turn) and "territory" (political or aesthetic), lead to studies of space, place, influence, and writing and reading practices across cultural divides. The essays also explore the character of diasporic writing, the cultural significance of oral tale-telling, and interconnections between socio/political issues and strategies of style.
Dhuuluu-Yala by Anita Heiss Book Resume:
Dhuuluu-Yala is a Wiradjuri phrase meaning 'to talk straight' and this book is straight talk about publishing Indigenous literature in Australia. It also includes broader issues that writers need to consider: engaging with readers and reviewers. The book covers the period up to the mid-1900s, though some references are included up to 2000. Changes have been made since that date, however the issues identified in "Dhuuluu-Yala" remain current and to a large extent unresolved. The history of defining Aboriginality in Australia and the experience of being Aboriginal have both impacted on the production of Aboriginal writing today. These twin themes are the major focus of the book. The pioneering roles of Aboriginal writers who have gone before and created a space has allowed for the growth of an Indigenous publishing industry. Indeed, a literary and publishing culture have developed also because of the increasing desire and need for an authentic Indigenous voice in Australian literature. Although funding and other mechanisms are in place and possibilities afforded Indigenous writers have improved, opportunities are still limited, leading to some authors choosing to self-publish.

Black Ice Matter by Gina Cole Book Resume:
This collection of short stories explores connections between extremes of heat and cold. Sometimes this is spatial or geographical; sometimes it is metaphorical. Sometimes it involves juxtapositions of time; sometimes heat appears where only ice is expected. In the stories, a woman is caught between traditional Fijian ways and the brutality of the military dictatorship; a glaciology researcher falls into a crevasse and confronts the unexpected; two women lose children in freak shooting accidents; a young child in a Barbie Doll sweatshop dreams of a different life; secondary school girls struggle with secrets about an addicted janitor; and two women take a deathly trip through a glacier melt stream. These are some of the unpredictable stories in this collection that follow themes of ice and glaciers in the heat of the South Pacific and take us into unusual lives and explorations.

Legacy by Whiti Hereaka Book Resume:
Seventeen-year-old Riki is worried about school and the future, but mostly about his girlfriend, Gemma, who has suddenly stopped seeing or texting him. But on his way to see her, he’s hit by a bus and his life radically changes. Riki wakes up one hundred years earlier in Egypt, in 1915, and finds he’s living through his great-great-grandfather’s experiences in the Māori Contingent. At the same time that Riki tries to make sense of what’s happening and find a way home, we go back in time and read transcripts of interviews Riki’s great-great-grandfather gave in 1975 about his experiences in this war and its impact on their family. Gradually we realise the fates of Riki and his great-great-grandfather are intertwined.
