A brilliant collection of personal essays from a quietly subversive writer.

'Someone's Wife is hilarious and devastating, a sliver of New Zealand culture and history told through a single vibrant life and its entanglements with others. Slouching towards Aotearoa, perhaps Burgess is our Didion, albeit less aloof, more gregarious and with better jokes' - Emma Gattey, Landfall
