Christchurch PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Christchurch free pdf The city of the plains', 'the garden city', 'the cathedral city': Christchurch has traditionally been characterised by its geography, its horticulture and its Anglican heritage. But Christchurch also has a strong literary pedigree, signalled early on by Canterbury settlers like Sarah Amelia Courage, and later confirmed by the establishment of the Caxton Press and the Pegasus Press, both enlivened by the irrepressible Denis Glover, and by the vibrant theatre associated with Ngaio Marsh. For this wide-ranging anthology, Anna Rogers has selected poetry, prose and fiction that both celebrates and gently satirises the city on the Avon. Novelists James Courage and Steven Eldred-Grigg rub shoulders with columnist Joe Bennett, poet Hone Tuwhare and short fiction writers Owen Marshall and Fiona Farrell. It is a collection that citizens and visitors alike will appreciate and enjoy.
