Publisher's Summary

'Do you hear the people calling?'
'No.'
'See there, dummy, you're nowhere near dead.'
'Well, I don't believe you. How would you know?'
'Of course I know, I do, I do, I know all about it....'
Tawera and his sister are inseparable, in a relationship that is impossible for others to share. In fact his whole whanau is bonded by secrets, a genealogy stitched together by shame, joy, love, and sometimes grief.
Patricia Grace's major new novel merges recent headlines with stories of a heartfelt family history. It is an account of the mysteries that operate at many levels between generations, where the present is the pivot, the centre of the spiral, looking outward to the past and future that define it.
There's a way the older people have of telling a story, a way where the beginning is not the beginning, the end is not the end….

Stunning

An incredible book. Rips you apart and stitches you back together again better than you were before. Recommend to anyone/everyone.
