Once Upon a Time in Aotearoa, by Tina Makereti (Huia Publishers, 2010)
Kia ora mo tenei pukapuka Tina. Ka nui te pai tau pakiwaitara kei konei.
I enjoyed this initial collection of tales by Tina Makereti. It’s refreshing, rarely boring, easy to read. The stories rebound and resound with echoes from one to the other, motifs recur as time and legend intertwine in a patterning of melded possibilities and possible meldings.
