"Greatest Hits" - JAAM 21
Since the 1980s and 1990s the small press Earl of Seacliff Art
Workshop and the literary magazine JAAM and its offshoot publishing
arm, HeadworX, have made a unique and significant contribution to
New Zealand writing. This 'special 21st birthday issue' of JAAM
offers a retrospective showcase of some of the local and overseas
writing that has helped reshape and reinvigorate the local literary
scene over the last two decades. In doing so, the issue emphasizes
the connection JAAM and the two small presses have made between
popular music and literary culture in New Zealand.
The book contains 104 contributors from 100 publications,
including Sam Hunt, Fleur Adcock, Albert Wendt, Hone Tuwhare, Jenny
Bornholdt, Lauris Edmond and Fiona Kidman.
