then the wind came
Passionate about Aotearoa, Iona Winter has a deep connection with nature and weaves past, present and future to create a bicultural melding of the worlds she inhabits. Themes of family, dysfunction, violence, survival and hope perfuse.
'These stories and poems bring a wonderful new realism to the page. The writing is strong and clear, infused with human feeling and shot through with a palpable sense of an expanded natural world.' — Sue Wootton
'… a startling collection of stories and poems by an original new voice … complex, traumatic, and ultimately celebratory. This book confirms Iona Winter as a profound writer who is a welcome, necessary voice in the literature of Aotearoa, New Zealand.' — Siobhan Harvey
