Collected Stories of Our Time

Auckland University has launched the first anthology of New Zealand literature bringing together fiction and non-fiction, poetry and prose into one volume. The 1184-page Anthology of New Zealand Literature was edited by Jane Stafford and Mark Williams and ranges across a broad landscape of New Zealand writing from the earliest records of exploration and encounter to the globalised, multicultural present. “Like ‘a knife through time’, the collection traverses the centuries, from Te Horeta encountering James Cook in the 1760s to the latest graduate of the creative writing class in the 2000s,” write the editors in their introduction.
