These unpredictable short stories explore themes of heat and cold, ice and glaciers in the heat of the South Pacific, and take us into unusual lives and situations.
A woman is caught between traditional ways and the regime of a military dictatorship; a glaciology researcher falls into a crevasse and confronts the unexpected; two women lose children in freak shooting accidents; a child in a Barbie Doll sweatshop dreams of a different life; school girls struggle with secrets about an addicted janitor; and two women take a deathly trip through a glacier melt stream.
Best First Book, Acorn Foundation Fiction category of the 2017 Ockham New Zealand Book Awards
'It would be a good book on any reckoning but as a first book it is simply outstanding. This collection of thirteen short stories shows an assurance of tone, a clarity of style and expression, and an ability to handle different voices, that would be the envy of most more experienced authors'Nicholas Reid - Sunday Star Times
'The best read of my fortnight...truly convincing stories with a totally forthright political, cultural dexterity about them, which is what we need right now.'Tilly Lloyd - Unity Book Wellington
