My name was Judas by C. K Stead( Book )

16 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We all know the story of Jesus told by Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, but what about the version according to Judas? Judas's name became synonymous with betrayer, but is that how he saw it himself? In this witty, original and teasingly controversial version, recounted some forty years after the death of Jesus, Judas finally tells the story as he remembers it. Looking back on his childhood and youth from an old age the gospel writers denied him, Judas recalls his friendship with Jesus; their schooling together; their families; the people who would go on to be disciples and followers; their journeys together and their dealings with the powers of Rome and the Temple. His is a story of friendship and rivalry, of a time of uncertainty and enquiry, a testing of belief, endurance and loyalty. With his richly painted backdrop of ancient Palestine, Stead goes beyond the boundaries of the story known to us all and convincingly enters the mind of one of its key players. This bold novel, with its wonderfully clear narrative prose, is fresh, provocative and compelling
Mansfield : a novel by C. K Stead( Book )

18 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in English and Japanese and held by 299 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The three years in the life of the writer Katherine Mansfield explored in this novel are in part the story of the ups and downs of her relationship with Jack Middleton Murry and her struggle to write the "new kind of fiction" which she felt the times demanded. She is restless, constantly on the move, in and out of London, to and from France, even into the war zone to be with her French lover, novelist Francis Carco. For a short time, Mansfield is able to behave as though the war is merely "background", but her ardent relationship with her brother, who arrives from New Zealand to fight in France, makes detachment impossible - as does her love for Jack's Oxford friend Frederick Goodyear, also a soldier. The war's shadow remorselessly darkens all their lives, but only increases Mansfield's determination to break through as a writer
In the glass case : essays on New Zealand literature by C. K Stead( Book )

17 editions published between 1981 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over a quarter of a century, C. K. Stead has built up a widely accessible collection of reviews and critical essays on New Zealand literature. In the Glass Case covers a wide spectrum of New Zealand writers, who are examined from a remarkably consistent viewpoint. The title is symbolic: New Zealand books were once held in a glass-fronted bookcase at the University of Auckland library. These were considered rare, although they are now out on the open shelves. Stead's views are often controversial and provoke discussion and passionate debate from other critics. This is not only an enlightening l

Collected stories by Maurice Duggan( Book )

9 editions published between 1971 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Maurice Duggan's Collected Stories is a powerful collection of short stories from one of New Zealand's finest writers of the genre. Duggan's lyrical power and exceptional style come to the fore in these brilliant stories, which are tinged with undercurrents and ambivalences. The variety of language gives great vitality to tales of a Catholic boyhood, troubled marriage, loneliness, small town ambitions and sexuality. Maurice Duggan destroyed his unpublished fiction, so Collected Stories represents virtually all of his remaining works. The critic, poet and novelist C. K. Stead has compiled and e
