Aubrey (korrick) | 2004 comments The Bone People, Keri Hulme, 1985, New Zealand, NOVEL

"...The Bone People explores the potential within families for both destruction and healing, as well as the great personal costs of the disintegration of individual connections to traditional communities and cultures—in this case, the indigenous Maori culture of New Zealand...She is a strong and compassionate woman, a sensualist who delights in color and landscape, food and archaic language, but who is also wary and conflicted..."

(P.H., p. 311)
