Picnic Virgin, The: New Writers
One of our most exciting new writers, Emily Perkins, has compiled a selection of the most exciting contemporary New Zealand fiction.
Emily Perkins's nineteen writers include total unknowns alongside recent prize-winners. Together, their work reveals the innovative directions which New Zealand literature is taking. These are stories filled with energy and humour, but they are also marked by moral passion and integrity
The Picnic Virgin offers some surprising perspectives on the New Zealand experience, seen from both home and elsewhere.
Individual, always inventive, these are our best new writers.
