Anahera Press is delighted to announce that we have just produced a limited print run of Jess Holly Bates’ first poetry collection, REAL FAKE WHITE DIRT. Based on a stage show she is taking to London, Edinburgh Fringe, and New York this year, Jess has penned an unsettling commentary on the quality of whiteness and history of colonialism in New Zealand. This book is an engaging, powerful, painfully funny and challenging read. Jess Holly Bates is a Pākehā performance poet, writer, actor and theatre-maker. (The book is available here.)
