Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Turning the Eye: Patricia Grace and the Short Story reprints seven short stories by Patricia Grace, one of New Zealand's most acclaimed writers. Judith Dell Panny follows each story with a commentary, discussion topics and a glossary. Appreciation of Maori writing in English is sometimes limited by inadequate knowledge of the Maori and their traditions. Readers can miss the full range of cultural implications. As well as discussing the literary merit of Patricia Grace's writing the commentaries and questions which follow each story, along with explanations of language use for readers from other parts of the world, assist with the cultural resonances. Having been introduced to seven stories, readers may wish to proceed to the full range of Patricia Grace's writing.

Includes text of seven stories by Patricia Grace with a commentary on each by Judith Dell Panny.

Includes bibliographical references (p. 145-147).

Between earth and sky -- Valley -- Journey --Kahawai -- Old ones become birds -- Sun's marbles --Ngati Kangaru.
