These unpredictable short stories explore themes of heat and cold, ice and glaciers in the heat of the South Pacific, and take us into unusual lives and situations. A woman is caught between traditional ways and the regime of a military dictatorship; a glaciology researcher falls into a crevasse and confronts the unexpected; two women lose children in freak shooting accidents; a child in a Barbie Doll sweatshop dreams of a different life; school girls struggle with secrets about an addicted janitor; and two women take a deathly trip through a glacier melt stream.

"As a bit of a geek, I've read a lot of comics, and this one is certainly up there...I'd give the illustration a strong 9/10."

Te Rakitaunuku Tau - Te Karaka

"It would be a good book on any reckoning but as a first book it is simply outstanding. This collection of thirteen short stories shows an assurance of tone, a clarity of style and expression, and an ability to handle different voices, that would be the envy of most more experienced authors"

Nicholas Reid, Sunday Star Times

"The best read of my fortnight...truly convincing stories with a totally forthright political, cultural dexterity about them, which is what we need right now."

Tilly Lloyd, Unity Book Wellington
