Craig Foltz and Compound Press present:
Locals Only Book Launch and Performance: An Outsider’s Insider Perspective on Aotearoa.
A US exile gets lost in the Aotearoa bush—exactly what he wanted. These poems range with exuberant humour and intelligence from tourist traps such as Franz Josef glacier, to Maungapōhatu and other places more out-of-the-way than you could ever imagine. Sometimes it takes an outsider to find the uniquely absurd sights and rhythms that ensure we’ll never look at home the same way again.
