David Geary

Man of the People, A

ISBN: 9780864734402

An aspiring cross-dressing politician

An encounter in the film festival toilets

A lonely farmer who buys armour on the internet and jousts in Palmerston North

Come and discover the heartland. A Man of the People uncovers the bizarre personalities and weird events that are the true stories of ordinary New Zealanders. Funny, sensitive, ruthless and warm - this is the fiction debut of the year.

David Geary’s short stories have been attracting the attention of readers of literary magazines and anthologies for several years. This first collection will establish him as one of the most innovative and remarkable short story writers of our time. These stories make an immediate impression with their vigorous, often outrageous humour, and with their firm grounding in New Zealand’s country towns and suburbs. But their darker subtexts soon become apparent, as does a passionate engagement with social and political issues.
