In Festival of Miracles Alice Tawhai has created a bittersweet New Zealand wonderland that is at once luminous and sensual, tragic and fated. The stories in this debut collection are set from the Hokianga to Bluff, and they are populated by a stunning range of characters - circus workers, tattoo artists, bikies, mail-order brides, beautiful victims, wild children, immigrants, tangata whenua - who never cease to believe that they will find perfect things amidst the human imperfection of their lives: miracles, not misfortune.

Alice Tawhai is of Tainui and Ng Puhi descent. Her life has covered a vast range of experiences, and this is reflected in her writing. Her previous short story collections are Festival of Miracles and Luminous, and she thinks of writing stories as being like painting with words.
