Next month (October) is New Zealand Book Month, and I want to show my support of Kiwi authors by buying some books. Problem is, I don't really know that many. So:
Whose books should I buy? Any recommendations? The only NZ-authored books I've really read have been Maurice Gee's children's books (many many years ago), some of Katherine Mansfield's short stories, the various Six Packs, The Sound of Butterflies by Rachael King, and nearly everything by the fantastic Juliet Marillier.
But I want to use New Zealand Book Month as an opportunity to discover some new fiction authors.
I don't know that many New Zealand authors — or books. But I want to find out! So, please — if you have any recommendations, let me know.
