The Keys to Hell
A new collection of weird and wonderful short stories from one of New Zealands most original young writers, which builds on the underground success her first collection, The Spit Children, found.
Jo Randerson is the author of The Spit Children (short stories) and The Knot (a story illustrated by Vita Cochran), as well as numerous plays including The Unforgiven Harvest and Fold, and is the founder and Artistic Director of Barbarian Productions.
The Keys to Hell is illustrated by the renowned artist, actor and filmmaker Taika Waititi. His short film, Two Cars, One Night has won numerous awards and was nominated for an Academy Award.
'Sometimes publishers go out on a limb, offering something that can't be easily categorised. VUP have done this with Randerson's new collection, and should be applauded for taking the risk as much as Randerson for the work produced. If you're looking for something fresh and unusual, this is the book for you.' —Siobhan Harvey, NZ Herald
