Being the record of an expedition to locate and capture an iceberg seen to be somewhere off the coast of the South Island, last seen buried deep within Freemans Bay... Overlooking an old boatyard, in a city threatened by drought, in a country wracked by unusual weather patterns, in a building marked for demolition, a fugitive from art contemplates a blank canvas, a jar of old brushes and a fresh page in his journal. As he surveys the grounds on which he's lived and worked 'a mutinous crew' conspire to take him on a voyage of salvage and recovery, into inner city Auckland of the 'sixties to revisit the deaths which he believes his early obsession is implicated. A voyage to illuminate a looming personal and global disaster, to navigate the shoals if art and politics, obsession and friendship, and the shifting shores of modern art movements. REVIEWS - SOMETHING ELSE ‘A book to savour.’ Rowan Gibbs (E.S.A.W. Books) ‘One reason the book is remarkable is the language. It is classical but manages to describe hip better than hip. He gets the hope inherent in hippie culture. It is heartfelt writing to communicate that wondrous belief in a new way of living. Now that the threat to individual freedom is so apparent, it is a good time to do a recall.' Jacqueline Fahey (Something for the Birds; Before I Forget; Cutting Loose) 'An amazing book. The use of language most impressive, especially what for a better word I'll call free association by the characters and the narrator. So much I was familiar with e.g. the art arguments took me back to my uni days when I hung out with the fine arts crowd at Ilam. Great characters. Oh boy, what an epic.' Barry Southam (Footprints on a Gravel Road, Mixed Singles)

He's an award-winning Olympic and Amercia's Cup Sailor. He beat cancer twice before surviving a lethal America's Cup catamaran crash. But of all the battles Kevin A. Hall has faced in his life, few have been as brutal as the one raging inside his mind. Diagnosed with bipolar disorder in 1989, Hall has experienced episodes of severe mania, with corresponding deep depressions, for more than a quarter of a century. Throughout that time, he has faced imposter syndrome, hospitalizations, and a number of other setbacks as he struggled to make his dreams a reality. In Black Sails White Rabbits, Hall reflects on his life's journey up until this point - and the influence of one woman he couldn't have done without - in an inspirational tale that combines his memoir and message of hope with a surprising story of true love.
