If I began asking you questions about Wellington ways there would be no end to it …’ Katherine Mansfield

I came home to Wellington, to a place half remembered, half real, half fantasy, half fact, remembered and a dream …’ Kirsty Gunn

In this exquisitely written ‘notebook’, Kirsty Gunn explores the meaning of home. Returning to the city of her birth after an absence of thirty years, Gunn’s exploration quickly takes on new forms, developing into a ‘Katherine Mansfield Project’.

Zig-zagging across Thorndon streets, Wellington hills and New Zealand childhoods, Gunn’s project charts a terrain of emotional attachment and the source of potent imaginative forces.

A wonderfully connective work from the winner of the 2013 New Zealand Post Book of the Year.
