Ships in 3-5 business days
Mark and Gus live in neighbouring dairy farms in rural New Zealand. Mark, the narrator, is a stoic introvert; his neighbour Gus however, is an "ideas" man. Gus usually convinces Mark to... More > help him and, well, this usually leads to disastrously funny moments. Mark and Gus are characters best known from the Gus and Me tales depicted on New Zealand radio in the 1950s. Mark and Gus is an anthology of Frank S. Anthony's original short stories which were published in 1923-24 in the New Zealand Herald, Christchurch Weekly and Auckland Weekly News. You will laugh out loud at some of the situations in which hot-headed Gus and gullible Mark find themselves. Told through the stoic and thoroughly Kiwi voice of Mark, the reader can envision the surrounding land, animals and locals which lead the two friends on a lively set of misadventures through 1920s rural New Zealand. These funny stories never lose their humour; you can tell and retell these "comedy of errors" to a delighted audience of all ages.< Less

Pelican Dreaming: Poems 1959-2008 By Mark Young
Paperback: $24.00

If anyone these days is hanging onto a notion of consistent stylistic evolution as aesthetic merit, this volume will do its best to disorient them, as Young's "many mansions" feature a... More > variety of architectural modes. Could one predict the flights of Betabet from the unified narrative of "Grafton Bridge," much less "Lizard"? "George W.'s Language Primer" and "Maxims for Tom Beckett" are both very funny poems, but their humor is achieved in extremely different ways. If someone didn't know who wrote either "The Baggage Card" or "The Bride Stripped Bare By Her Bachelors, Even," would s/he necessarily assume that the same author was responsible for both? Mark Young has the courage to be traditional, imagistically or narratively direct, discrete, serial, surreal, "experimental," and "difficult" in the same season, year, or cluster of years. The reward is ours. --from the Introduction by Thomas Fink, Editor< Less
