Migration, demographic changes and new cultural references are reshaping New Zealand. It is fast becoming a hub where Pacific and Tasman currents meet. As a result, New Zealand is changing, in response to surging tides of people and ideas. Pacific Highways explores and maps the new New Zealand, in the words of the country's finest writers, including Eleanor Catton winner of the 2013 Man Booker Prize, Kate de Goldi, C. K. Stead, Bernard Beckett, Owen Marshall, Hinemoana Baker and many more. This collection of original essays, memoir, poetry, fiction and reportage will challenge the way you think about New Zealand. From reports from the Kiwi Diaspora in Australia, to a consideration of the growing Asian economic and cultural influence and the contribution of Pacific society to the arts and sports, this portrait of New Zealand takes you beyond the tourist brochures to something truly original. This edition co-edited by Lloyd Jones and Julianne Schultz, with support from Creative New Zealand.
