Journey through the many stories and worlds of the immortal Vela  –  Vela, so red and ugly at birth they called him the Cooked; Vela the lonely admirer of pigs and the connoisseur of feet; Vela the lover of song maker Mulialofa the Boneman.

Follow him down through the centuries on his travels, encountering the single-minded society of the Tagata-Nei and the Smellocracy of Olfact. Accompany him, too, as he recounts the stories of Lady Nafanua, the fearsome warrior queen, whom travelling chroniclers still bow down before today.

""The book is sprawling, ambitious, often absurd...At its best it is beautiful.""

Jan Dutkiewicz - Metro magazine

""This is a book that holds you in its grip and that grip is the enticing voice of the storyteller: you just want to keep listening. Nonetheless it is also a book of layers that work away at you and demand further readings...'The Adventures of Vela' is a tour de force.""

Paula Green - NZ Listener
