First Edition Friday: The Bone People by Keri Hulme - 3rd Feb 2020

"Oh all the world is a little queer, except thee and me, and sometimes, I wonder about thee. "

This is the number one book I recommend to people when they come into the store. It is eloquent, it is captivating and it is dreamlike.
The Bone People was rejected by many big publishing houses when it was written - it ended up getting picked up by Spiral, a small feminist collective in Christchurch.
It won the Booker Prize in 1984, the Pegasus Prize for Literature in 1985 and continues to be revered as a work of literary art all throughout New Zealand.
We have FOUR first edition first issue copies of The Bone People. They range in condition and therefore price, but you can pick up a copy for between $120 and $325NZD.
