At the Heart of Hiruharama

By Isabel Waiti-Mulholland

At the Heart of Hiruharama

Morna never met her father Don; he left when she was still in the womb. Now he comes to her as a ghost, telling stories that she writes down as though they are from her unconscious. When Morna’s mother dies, Morna becomes irritable and distant with grief. She and her friend Mars go for a trip to Cape Reinga, and on the journey she begins reading to Mars what she has written. Morna’s writing is bleak but cathartic. She has a fascination for death, funerals, moreporks and ghosts, yet at the same time the dreamlike quality lightens it. People who have both Māori and Pākehā whakapapa will relate to the kind of limbo that Morna embodies, the in-between of not quite being either.
