Product description

Review

"A searing look at the urban subculture of New Zealand's native people." -- Toronto Globe and Mail

"A starkly realistic account...as important, as frank, as powerful a book as [Alice Walker's The Color Purple] was for Americans."

Dominion (New Zealand)

Review

Duff (himself the son of a Maori mother and a white father) shows amazing facility with language in the intense, fast-paced, choppy internal monologues he gives his characters ... Duff shows courage in attacking the view that assimilation is the first step out of poverty, and he does so by spinning a compelling tale. (Kirkus Reviews)

Alan Duff's first novel bursts upon the literary landscape with all the noise and power of a new volcano. (Witi Ihimaera)
