An interesting collection of Nagovisi stories


WHEN I WAS CORRESPONDING with Keith Jackson of about old radio tapes a few months ago, I mentioned I was working on a collection of stories set in Nagovisi on Bougainville.

I’m pleased to tell PNG Attitude readers that the collection is now available on Amazon.

What's unusual about this collection of linked stories is that, although the coordinating character of the American anthropologist appears in all of them, he never gets a turn to narrate, except in the final piece, which is set many years later.

So the reader learns about the anthropologist and the Nagovisi through the eyes of the Nagovisi. And of course the anthropologist shows a different side of himself to each of the Nagovisi narrators.

The stores are punctuated by Nagovisi folk tales.

In a few days there will be a Kindle edition as well.
