‘Foundations’ is all about decolonising history and as such I would love to see it in as many libraries as possible. Please consider requesting that your local or university library buys it for its collection. You will need to cite the paperback ISBN when requesting. Thank you
It has received numerous 5 star reviews (averaging 4.8 on Goodreads). The most recent reader feedback called it “a courageous book” and the reader “learned a lot about New Zealand and Kanaky New Caledonia, finding the genealogical aspect fascinating”. They said, “I loved the weaving between the bildungsroman of the researcher, the taste of the archives, the love for languages and the developing political conscience, the decolonising story and the family and historical passages”.
Here is a short video of me from the NZSA writers read YouTube channel reading chapter 5, ‘Papatoetoe’, from ‘Foundations’.
