Annual Ink’s latest title #Tumeke! brings you the lives, loves and larrikin spirit of an inner-city neighbourhood. Michael Petherick juggles a large cast and multiple story threads with panache, giving us a window on a vivid, warm-hearted community.
Written by debut novelist Michael Petherick - #Tumeke! follows the Newtoun community’s Waitangi Day celebrations. The Tape Orchestra’s practising like mad. Monty and Mr Steve Vibrant are designing a poster. Rishi’s trying to land Lil Yacht Shifty … and Ms Ropata’s juggling it all because everyone wants in. In the meantime, Dreadflock’s considering a blog, Briony’s Mum’s being a helicopter, and everyone’s eating a lot of lolly cake.
