We are delighted to announce that in 2016 Anahera Press will publish a novel by distinguished Māori writer Apirana Taylor entitled Five Strings.
The novel is a love story about two alcoholic drug addicts, Puti and Mack, and the hidden tragedy that Puti rediscovers as she finally puts her smashed mind together. It is set in the seedy tough underground world of people who live on the fringes of society, and is a compelling read!
Apirana Taylor, of Te Whanau-a-Apanui, Ngati Porou and Taranaki descent, is one of New Zealand’s foremost writers. He has published several collections of poetry, short stories and novels. He has also published prolifically in other mediums including sound and video recordings. He writes for children and theatre, and is involved in acting, and teaching drama. Apirana’s first collection of poetry, Eyes of the Ruru, established his powerful voice among Māori writers, and his prose, written predominantly in realist modes, firmly established his literary presence.
This is the first novel the press will produce and we’re looking forward to it! More details, including release date, to follow.
