Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

This anthology includes memoirs, stories, and poems written in France by some of New Zealand's greatest writers--among them Janet Frame, Allen Curnow, James K. Baxter, and Michael King. French writers--including Blaise Cendrars, rugby writer Denis Lalanne, and Charles Juliet--have, in turn, visited New Zealand and their imaginative engagement with the region is also represented.

This anthology includes memoirs, stories and poems written in France by some of New Zealand's greatest writers - among them Janet Frame, Allen Curnow, James K. Baxter and Michael King. During the same period, French writers have, in turn, visited New Zealand and their imaginative engagement with this place is also represented. Not only has the experience of New Zealanders living in France enriched this country's literature; French writers are having a comparable experience of New Zealand. The Colour of Distance samples the traffic in both directions. Herein lies the proof that traveling 18,000 kilometres can make you see more vividly both the place of origin and the adopted home.

K. Stead, Ian Wedde, Damien Wilkins. Plus four full-colour paintings by Ralph Hotere and eight duotone photographs each by Bill Culbert, Peter Black and Alan Knowles.
