New Zealand Literature

Finalists for the NZ Post Book Award

I know New Zealand as a stronghold of interesting film (I just watched a little ditty called The Tatooist--not everyone's cup of tea, and I recall with great fondness The Quiet Earth--a film from New Zealand that packs a wallop.  And while Peter Jackson is Australian, through his filmwork, we see enough of New Zealand--and we mustn't forget the lovely scene in Endless Summer II of surfing in New Zealand on Christmas Day) I have relatively little acquaintance (that I'm aware of) with New Zealand literature--excluding, of course, Dame Ngaio.  So it's nice to see a list that could comprise recommendations.
