Anahera Press is very pleased to announce that our next poetry book publication will be The Art of Excavation by Leilani Tamu. This stunning debut collection is, like its author, fierce and political, not to mention tender and perceptive, and we are proud to be its publisher. The book is a vibrant and challenging offering from a young Pacific woman writer who is also a mother, historian, former diplomat and columnist. In 2013 the author was Fulbright-CNZ Pacific Writer in Residence at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa. Available at all good New Zealand bookstores, ebook available via Amazon out now. Launching 12 August 2014.
