Customer Review

on 2 June 2011
STAR WAKA defintely marks one of the very significant achievements in contemporary literature from Aotearoa New Zealand. The author employs such poetic elegance and vivid leading motifs that his narration can touch upon a huge range of topics without losing narrative unity and excitement. This causes STAR WAKA to resemble one of the most technically innovative as well as thematically relevant approaches of recent literature from Aotearoa New Zealand. It allows for deep insights into socio-cultural reality in the fashion of an appealing Odyssean voyage through Maori identity challenges within modern life. Thus, after his first promising steps and explorations into the realms of literature (Jazz Waiata 1990, Piki Ake! 1993 and Maui... 1996) Robert Sullivan finally interweaves in STAR WAKA supreme artistic creativity with bold intellectual range. This book can truly be seen as the first grand achievement in his career - so if you are interested in poetic narratives covering contemporary Maori life, it is defintely worth the challenge of obtaining it from antiquarian book stores!
