Six by Six: Short Stories by New Zealand's Best Writers | VUP Classic

Author(s): Bill Manhire

NZ Fiction

First published in 1989 and reprinted numerous times, Six by Six remains the definitive introduction to the classic New Zealand short story. Six by Six is a big, generous book. It shows the full range and vitality of New Zealand fiction published in the twentieth century. These are stories of pace and invention, mischief and melancholy, darkness and joy. From a two-page sketch by Patricia Grace to Maurice Duggan’s short novel ‘O’Leary’s Orchard’. From classics like Katherine Mansfield’s ‘The Garden Party’ and Frank Sargeson’s ‘Conversation with My Uncle’ to the contemporary brilliance of Owen Marshall and Janet Frame. Edited by Bill Manhire.
