Written by Ngāi Tahu author and journalist Becky Manawatu, Auē is a work of gritty, social realist fiction centring on the lives of orphaned brothers: eight-year-old Arama and teenager Taukiri. Dealing with themes of domestic violence, gang culture, curdled masculinity and fractured families, this award-winning debut from a uniquely New Zealand voice captures remarkable insights into the minds of children and young men. Join Manawatu in conversation with Tara June Winch.
