Six by Six
First published 1989; reprinted 1991, 1997
Six by Six is a big, generous book. It shows the full range and vitality of New Zealand fiction. Here are stories of pace and invention, mischief and melancholy, darkness and joy. From a two-page sketch by Patricia Grace to Maurice Duggan’s short novel ‘O’Leary’s Orchard’. From classics like Katherine Mansfield’s ‘The Garden Party’ to the contemporary brilliance of Owen Marshall.
