The Imaginary Lives of James Poneke by Tina Makereti Book Resume:

While exhibited as a curiosity, a Maori boy turns his gaze on Victorian London. 'The hour is late. The candle is low. Tomorrow I will see whether it is my friends or a ship homewards I meet. But first I must finish my story for you. My future, my descendant, my mokopuna. Listen.' So begins the tale of James Poneke: orphaned son of a chief; ardent student of English; wide-eyed survivor. All the world's a stage, especially when you're a living exhibit. But anything can happen to a young New Zealander on the savage streets of Victorian London. When James meets the man with laughing dark eyes and the woman who dresses as a man, he begins to discover who people really are beneath their many guises. Although London is everything James most desires, this new world is more dark and dazzling than he could have imagined.

The Imaginary Lives of James Poneke by Tina Makereti Book Resume:

James Pōneke is a young Māori orphan, raised by missionaries, with a burning desire to travel and explore the world. When an English artist on a tour of New Zealand invites James to return home with him, the boy eagerly accepts and agrees to become a living exhibit at the artist’s London show. Gainsborough loathes pandering to grand sitters, but he changes his tune when he is commissioned to paint King George III and his large family. In their final, most bitter competition, who will be chosen as court painter, Tom or Sir Joshua? By day, James dresses in full tribal outfit, being stared at, prodded and examined by paying visitors. By night, he is free to explore the city, but anything can happen to a young New Zealander on the savage streets of Victorian London and James is unprepared for the wonders, dangers and unearthed secrets that await. The Imaginary Lives of James Pōneke is an unforgettable work of historical fiction in the spirit of Sarah Waters and Sarah Perry. 'A historical love letter to London, a coming-of-age story, a love story’ – Stella Duffy ‘A riveting vision of the world seen from the inside out. The Imaginary Lives of James Pōneke is a gutsy, searing and totally absorbing read. I loved it all the way’ – Fiona Kidman ‘Made streets I’ve walked a thousand times seem new and strange’ – Damian Barr

Where the Rekohu Bone Sings

The Imaginary Lives Of James Poneke [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Where the Rekohu Bone Sings by Tina Makereti Book Resume:

From the Chatham Islands/ Rekohu to London, from 1835 to the 21st century, this quietly powerful and compelling novel confronts the complexity of being Moriori, Maori and Pakeha. In the 1880s, Mere yearns for independence. Iraia wants the same but, as the descendant of a slave, such things are hardly conceivable. One summer, they notice their friendship has changed, but if they are ever to experience freedom they will need to leave their home in the Queen Charlotte Sounds. A hundred years later, Lula and Bigs are born. The birth is literally one in a million, as their mother, Tui, likes to say. When Tui dies, they learn there is much she kept secret and they, too, will need to travel beyond their world, to an island they barely knew existed. Neither Mere and Iraia nor Lula and Bigs are aware that someone else is part of their journeys. He does not watch over them so much as through them, feeling their loss and confusion as if it were his own.

Black Marks on the White Page

The Imaginary Lives Of James Poneke [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Black Marks on the White Page by Witi Ihimaera,Tina Makereti Book Resume:

A stunning collection of Oceanic stories for the 21st century. Stones move, whale bones rise out of the ground like cities, a man figures out how to raise seven daughters alone. Sometimes gods speak or we find ourselves in a not-too-distant future. Here are the glorious, painful, sharp and funny 21st century stories of Maori and Pasifika writers from all over the world. Vibrant, provocative and aesthetically exciting, these stories expand our sense of what is possible in Indigenous Oceanic writing. Witi Ihimaera and Tina Makereti present the very best new and uncollected stories and novel excerpts, creating a talanoa, a conversation, where the stories do the talking. And because our commonalities are more stimulating than our differences, the anthology also includes guest work from an Aboriginal Australian writer, and several visual artists whose work speaks to similar kaupapa. Join us as we deconstruct old theoretical maps and allow these fresh Black Marks on the White Page to expand our perception of the Pacific world.

Wolf Country

The Imaginary Lives Of James Poneke [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Wolf Country by Tunde Farrand Book Resume:

London, 2050. The socio-economic crisis of recent decades is over and consumerism is thriving. Ownership of land outside the city is the preserve of a tiny elite, and the rest of the population must spend to earn a Right to Reside. Ageing has been abolished thanks to a radical new approach, replacing retirement with blissful euthanasia at a Dignitorium. When architect Philip goes missing, his wife Alice risks losing her home and her status, and begins to question the society in which she was raised. Her search for him uncovers some horrifying truths about the fate of her own family and the reality behind the new social order. Wolf Country is a powerful dystopian vision in the spirit of Black Mirror and Never Let Me Go.

Islands of Decolonial Love

The Imaginary Lives Of James Poneke [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Islands of Decolonial Love by Leanne Simpson Book Resume:

In her debut collection of short stories, Islands of Decolonial Love, renowned writer and activist Leanne Simpson vividly explores the lives of contemporary Indigenous Peoples and communities, especially those of her own Nishnaabeg nation. Found on reserves, in cities and small towns, in bars and curling rinks, canoes and community centres, doctors offices and pickup trucks, Simpson's characters confront the often heartbreaking challenge of pairing the desire to live loving and observant lives with a constant struggle to simply survive the historical and ongoing injustices of racism and colonialism. Told with voices that are rarely recorded but need to be heard, and incorporating the language and history of her people, Leanne Simpson's Islands of Decolonial Love is a profound, important, and beautiful book of fiction.

Billy Bird

The Imaginary Lives Of James Poneke [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Billy Bird by Emma Neale Book Resume:

Moving, insightful, lyrical and also at times very funny, this novel is a supple, disarmingly frank exploration of parenthood. Liam and Iris have one son: Billy, a bright 'toddler puddling about like a penguin, leaving surrealist art installations all over the house- a tiny cow in a teapot in a hat on the doorstep, of course! A stuffed crocodile in a silk camisole perched beside a woollen chick in a beanie on the bread-bin, why not!' Just as they are despairing about being able to conceive another child, Jason comes into their family. He arrives under fraught circumstances, but might just make a perfect sibling for Billy. Jason is a ' lovely, poor, sad, unfortunate, ordinary, annoying, delightful nuisance of a ratbag of a hoot of a kid ' and the boys grow close over the ensuing years. But after a terrible accident, Billy turns into a bird. He utterly believes it: and as his behaviour becomes increasingly worrying, Liam and Iris must find a way to stop their family flying apart. When extracts of Billy Bird won the NZSA Peter and Dianne Beatson Fellowship, the judges said the project was 'inventive, joyful and beautifully written'. Ripe with playfulness, yet also unforgettably poignant, this novel will unstitch - and then mend - your heart several times over.

Once Upon a Time in Aotearoa by Tina Makereti Book Resume:

Vulnerable gods and goddesses Children born with unusual gifts The protection offered by Mountains Birds with bad timing Once Upon a Time in Aotearoa explores a world where mythological characters and stories become part of everyday life. Old and new worlds co-exist, cultures mingle and magic happens. Familiar characters appear, but in these versions the gods live in a contemporary world and are motivated by human concerns. In this perplexing world, characters connect with each other and find ancient wisdom that carries them through. 'Bold and sexy, this collection is a crafty combo of mystery and history that makes the old new.' Acclaimed playwright, author and literary judge David Geary 'I loved this book because the stories were wacky and entirely original but based upon blending contemporary and traditional values- so they were very thought provoking.' Brian Bargh, Huia Publisher

Abandoned Novel

The Imaginary Lives Of James Poneke [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Abandoned Novel by David Beach Book Resume:

Combining ideas, information, and language from a broad range of sources, and transforming them into lines that are both deliberately prosaic and mysteriously musical, this collection of 60 decasyllabic sonnets are both formally rigorous and bracingly antipoetic. From the opening evocation of a high-wire act through highly ironic explorations of ideas of literary immortality, to a ceremony of "at homeness" in Bolton Street Cemetery, this book traces a fascinating arc while introducing a striking new voice to poetry.

Chapter 3 looks at the Tūhoe 'constitutional claim', which concerns the Treaty implications of the fact that Tūhoe did not sign the Treaty, while chapter 4 concerns the Crown's 1866 confiscation of a large tract of Māori land in the eastern Bay of Plenty. Chapter 5 examines the military expeditions launched by the Crown into Te Urewera between 1869 and 1871, following the alliance of Tūhoe and Ngāti Whare with the messianic leader Te Kooti"--Front flap.
