From the perspective of a passionate New Zealand columnist, this diverse collection from Steve Braunias is a provocative commentary on society, politics, and the recession. From lambasting airhead politicians, apostrophe vigilantes, and purveyors of awful food to reflecting upon his experiences as a father, his travels in Antarctica, and his finally turning that age, this compilation is achingly funny and personal. Original and refreshing, this book reveals the inherent New Zealander character.
