Powerful and visionary, Keri Hulme has written the great New Zealand novel of our times.Winner of the Booker Prize in 1985, The Bone People is the story of Kerewin, a despairing part-Māori artist who is convinced that her solitary life is the only way to face the world. Her cocoon is rudely blown away by the sudden arrival during a rainstorm of Simon, a mute six-year-old whose past seems to hold some terrible trauma. In his wake comes his foster-father Joe, a Māori factory worker with a nasty temper. The narrative unravels to reveal the truths that lie behind these three characters, and in so doing displays itself as a huge, ambitious work that tackles the clash between Māori and European characters in beautiful prose of a heartrending poignancy. ‘In this novel, New Zealand’s people, its heritage and landscape are conjured up with uncanny poetry and perceptiveness’ Sunday Times
