A revealing guide to the weird and wonderful inhabitants of New Zealand… and the places you’ll find them After years of mimicking various celebrities and stereotypes on his social media platforms, comedian Tom Sainsbury has now compiled his favourite New Zealand personalities into a book. This array of Kiwi heroes includes the useless farmhand that is forever jack-knifing the trailer, the martyr mother who guilt-trips her children, the officious office-worker who narks on the rest of the staff for low level misdemeanours, and the alpha-male teenager who loiters around Mount Maunganui every New Year’s. All these descriptions are lovingly collated into a concise, easy-to-read field guide that’ll give you a hilarious, in-depth insight into the people of Aotearoa.
