Author:Steve Braunias
Awards:GENERAL NON-FICTION CATEGORY WINNER - NEW ZEALAND POST BOOK AWARDS 2013 What the judges said: "Steve Braunias has a tremendous feel for character and language. There are passages that would be the envy of many a novelist.

Steve Braunias travels off the grid to capture weird and wonderful goings-on in small-town New Zealand. Full of fascinating - and sometimes disturbing - stories about people living in 20 places - from Kawakawa to Mosgiel, and across the seas in Samoa and Antarctica - their lives, loves, aspirations, and sometimes dark secrets... read more
