Jacinda Ardern's rallying call to New Zealand to deny oxygen to the toxic rationale behind the mosque attacks of the 15th of March has given rise to an anthology of New Zealand writing from all of its voices and cultures and many different ages. Ko Aotearoa Tātou | We Are New Zealand, asks, what is New Zealand now, in all its rich variety and contradiction, darkness and light? Who are we? Is our shared inheritance something more complex than our hardy, wholesome international image might suggest? Paula Morris has edited the anthology.
