To celebrate her 80th birthday, Dame Fiona Kidman has brought together 13 of her short stories to explore what it means to love.

They're selected from almost half a decade of writing, and include several new stories.

Over the years she's published more than 30 books of short stories and poems as well as novels, non fiction and a play.

Just last year her novel This Mortal Boy won New Zealand's top fiction prize, the Booklovers Award and the Ngaio Marsh Award.
