  1. A stunning collection of poems by one of New Zealand s finest poets Tuwhare s work covers a range of themes, Maori history and folklore, current events and political issues, identity, loneliness and sexuality In some poems I could recognise the references that led to this book being challenged, but am immensely pleased that it was not restricted in any way Moon Daughter and No Ordinary Sun are standouts.
