Alas, alack, the publisher copies of Daren Kamali’s book have officially SOLD OUT!! (In many ways, a nice problem to have!) However, do please contact the author directly as he still has copies for sale. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org. And I believe there is ONE remaining copy in stock, on the shelf, at The Women’s Bookshop on Ponsonby Rd. Be quick to snap that one up! Nga mihi, Kiri
Anahera Press is currently on hiatus while we assess our future direction. While we take a break, limited copies of Daren Kamali’s poetry book are still available, so please feel free to continue to email us for orders. Ka kite ano!
