A Game of Two Halves: The Best of Sport 2005–2019
Sport was conceived in Damien Wilkins’ yellow Ford Escort – he tells the story in the introduction to Great Sporting Moments: The Best of Sport 1988–2004 – and born in spring. A Game of Two Halves: The Best of Sport 2005–2019 chronicles the second half of Aotearoa New Zealand’s most exciting literary magazine’s life.
This big, generous book presents 600 pages of fiction, poetry, essays and oddities by 100 of our best writers, from leading lights like Bill Manhire, Ashleigh Young and Elizabeth Knox, to emerging glow worms like Tayi Tibble, Ruby Solly and Eamonn Marra.
A Game of Two Halves includes an introduction by Sport’s publisher and founding editor Fergus Barrowman, and biographical notes on the writers.
