The Mermaid Boy
by John Summers
'These strange, fetching yarns of outsiders, losers, and other average New Zealanders read like fiction, with their artful crafting of unlikely events - there's a slow boat to China, a kid in a mermaid suit, and a dildo on a doorknob in a dingy flat in Christchurch. It's non-fiction as murky realism, and its down low, observational, fun.'
- Steve Braunias
Autobiography of a Marguerite
'Butcher-McGunnigle's poetry evokes Anne Carson and Thalia Field. It is original, startling writing.' - Sonja Yelich
