Description

"Raisin Bread Toast and other collected tales of fantastica" MICHAELGLOCK was born in Newtown, just outside of Lyall Bay and next to Kilbirnie, where he bought his first pair of cowboy boots. On Saturday afternoons he would with his grandmother, walk to Kilbirnie to watch the movie matinees. It was the era of swashbuckling pirates and it was their deeds that shaped his life. These stories are mostly set in New Zealand around the late fifties and sixties, a British colony until 1947. It was first discovered by Captain James Cook In 1769, and after bitter internecine warfare between the indigenous tribes, combined with white-settler lawlessness the Maoris accepted Britain's offer to govern the islands. A ceremony was promptly held at Paihia on the northeast coast of the North Island, on what is now known as the Waitangi Treaty Grounds. This event occured in 1840. Exactly 116 years later Michael Glock was born in Wellington, and "voila" the tall tales began. Lyall Bay, red borscht and a hunt for wisdom, it all happened at Oma's house. Meet Ike and Opa, formative personalities with Munchausenian scaled tales that shaped a mind. Tall pine trees being felled by Ernst and Hans interspersed with delight-full encounters set in Los Angeles, California. A seductively beautiful collection of tender, sensual, and evocative scenes. These 'filled with wonder' tales portray the archetypal drive for wholeness and its uncanny hunger for imperfection.
