    This is the second novel I have read by Maurice Shadbolt My first was his first Among the Cinders I bought it at the rubbish tip shop in Raglan while on holiday there two or three years ago I was on the lookout for New Zealand fiction as I had recently started teaching English again and wanted to immerse myself in New Zealand literature beyond my confused attempt at reading Keri Hulme's The Bone People when I first arrived in the country those many years ago Shadbolt caught my attention as I had heard he was a legendary New Zealand writer who had lived his last years in my town of Taumarunui Not only that but I know his son from Taumarunui and his children are friends of my sonSo impressed was I with Among the Cinders that I happily purchased Strangers and Journeys this time from the rubbish tip shop in Taumarunui Now I'm not saying that Shadbolt and rubbish tip shops have anything particular in common I just seem to meet his books there Another interesting side note to this find was that I knew the previous owner who had inscribed her name inside the front cover Small town Strangers and Journeys won the 1973 Wattie Book of the Year award in New ZealandI loved Stranger and Journeys and while I'm not ualified to make such an assessment I think of it as New Zealand's East of Eden I read Steinbeck's classic last year so it was fresh in my mind when I started reading Strangers last April Like Eden Strangers tells the stories of three generations from fathers to sons to grandsons; it incorporates a landscape that is truly New Zealand Bill Freeman and Ned Livingston are the fathers Bill is an ardent orator for the Communist Party and Ned is a returning war vet set on farming his land away from the complications of the cities and wider world The two men have little to do with each other until Bill ends up in the small rural town of Te Ika near Ned's farm It is their sons who meet Ian Freeman and Tim Livingston at school and later in Auckland One is destined to be a journalist and novelist the other a painter The novel shifts from their fathers' rural common man setting to the riotous political and cultural scene of AucklandI really enjoyed this part of the book Shadbolt's ability to shift from taciturn farmers to vibrant uirky characters in the city It's a tumultuous ride from there swapping of girlfriends police brutality against striking unionists unplanned pregnancies even murder At the core of it is a group of men who are determined to see Tim Livingston rise to the top of the art world in New Zealand and possibly globallyDespite many varying measures of success everyone fails really and Shadbolt never gives the reader much hope for The writing is punchy consisting of short sentences and mainly filled with the dialogue of Kiwi blokes understated and unelaborative It works most times there are things left unsaid than said even in 588 pagesFor me the characters of Bill Freeman and Tim Livingston cast long complicated shadows over the entire work and will resonate with me afterI recommend this book to anyone wanting a terrific sampling of New Zealand literature even if it is so focussed on white male New Zealand characters It's short on Maori characters and the female characters primarily fill the roles of wife girlfriend or sister While I can't say how accurate it describes New Zealand from 1919 1971 I felt completely satisfied with the breadth of New Zealand politics culture and humanity that Shadbolt coversAntony Millen is the author of Redeeming Brother Murrihy The River To HiruharamaRedeeming Brother Murrihy The River To Hiruharama

    Verschrobene Männer minimalistische Kommunikation Es geht um vorwiegend um Väter und Söhne Überlebenskampf Vieles erscheint typisch traditionell männlich Sturheit Zurückgezogenheit Misstrauen Verlegenheit In den 60er Jahren sind die Söhne Tim L und Ian F in Auckland; Projektionen der Erwartungen auf ihr Tun Zusammenbruch der Gemeinschaft Wiederholung der väterlichen Unzulänglichkeiten gegen Ende sogar stärker unglaubwürdig verschroben Der Autor verschachtelt die Zeiten der Kontext wird unübersichtlich Gut geschrieben spannend unterhaltend

    This is an appealing book and I would give it a 35 stars if a I could I found the 1st 13 compelling the 2nd third a little less so and the final third a bit of a let down The book follows the lives of 2 fathers and their sons from the end of WWI to the 70s The descriptions of the fathers at the beginning of the books are very powerful but the grown sons seem pale in comparison Perhaps this is the point I do think it gives an accurate portrayal of New Zealand from a Kiwi's point of view If you spend time in NZ it is well worth reading
