He travels from Auckland to Dunedin, New Zealand, in search of love but along the way he encounters many things he didnt count on, his journey becomes playful, outrageous and immense. OLearys prose, wordplay, multilingual puns provide a Maori-modernist take on Aotearoa New Zealand. Political and literary jabs add feisty humour to the books exploration of the unlevel relationships between people, between New Zealand and elsewhere. Another novel in the Irish Maori tradition.
