The Godwits Fly
ROBIN HYDE
One of New Zealand’s major writers published this novel in England in 1938. ‘Eliza’ (the author herself) grows up in strait-laced Wellington, longs to leave (like a godwit flying away) but encounters life and love and heartache. In the Observer Rachel Cooke called it ‘a gorgeous read: indulgent in parts, painful in others... lush and unconventional... it’s all very powerfully odd.’And The Lady thought it ‘enchanting... funny, lyrical, the style more akin to poetry than fiction.’
A 1941 textiles design by the New Zealand artist Avis Higgs b. 1918
