Books Info:

Stonedogs free pdf Craig Marriner is New Zealand's response to Irivine Welsh and Quentin Tarantino. A novel, which won the Montana New Zealand Book Awards, to make you cringe and shudder, then wet yourself laughing. Its raw and scathing prose breaks new ground against the backdrop of a world-view as chilling as the nightly news. In between drug deals and binge-drinking, reckless driving and street fights, the delinquents of the Brotherhood wage the holiest of wars. Yes, they will derail the Juggernaut before it can suicide a or have a ball trying at least. But when one of them falls prey to Roto-Vegas gang members, the cultural terrorists mobilise in earnest. Revenge takes them on a road-trip - a coming of age from hell. It is a journey to the corners of a collective psyche peopled by nightmares as real as the headlines of today, a New Zealand the tourists and executives had better pray they never stumble upon. Alone and gut-shot, the Juggernaut closing in, the Brotherhood will rally for an audacious final stand, a last ditch fight for their minds and their lives a and perhaps for the future of us all.

About Craig Marriner

Craig Marriner is New Zealand's response to Irvine Welsh and Quentin Tarantino. The raw and scathing prose of his first novel, Stonedogs, broke new ground and the work went on to win the Deutz Medal for Fictionand the New Zealand Society of Authors Hubert Church Best First Book Award for Fiction at the 2002 Montana Book Awards. It was set in the world of gangs, drugs and the underbelly of New Zealand. Like Alan Duff, Marriner was raised in Rotorua, left school early and describes himself as living 'near the edge of the rails' before taking off to the Australian mines. He was a Buddle Findlay Sargeson Fellow in 2004 and currently lives in London. While Crimespace found Stonedogs not a 'particularly easy or pleasant read ... [it] is manic, rapidfire, and insane at points', it also had the reviewer laughing out loud. He concluded: 'Dark, violent, very in your face, this isn't going to be a book for everybody. But for anybody who does pick it up - I think I can guarantee it will stay with you for quite a while.' Salient found Southern Style'a complex novel, politically charged, engaged with racial issues and a damn good story too'. Commenting on Marriner's use of dark humour and how he 'further raises the intellectual bar with repeated commentary on political, social and racial issues', they concluded: 'Southern Style is an exciting read. It is fast paced, thought-provoking, well-written and firmly cements Marriner's status as one of New Zealand's best up and coming writers.'
