Join Unity Books Wellington and Te Herenga Waka University Press to celebrate new fiction books from Anthony Lapwood and Maria Samuela - Home Theatre & Beats of the Pa’u.
Home Theatre moves between the early 20th century and the modern-day. This genre-bending collection, spanning the fantastical and the keenly real, introduces an ensemble of remarkable characters—and the fateful building that connects them all.
Beats of the Pa‘u is a collection of stories about first- and second-generation Cook Islands New Zealanders living in 1950s to modern-day New Zealand. Powerful, poignant and gently funny, Beats portrays life lived uneasily in the tempo of a different place, by characters who are woven together through community, family and home.
