Somewhere a cleaner Poems by cleaners from around New Zealand During the Covid-19 pandemic, we’ve all been thinking about essential services. Including cleaning. Cleaning is universal. It’s steeped in tradition and culture. It’s essential, it’s ordinary and it’s surprisingly poetic. Somewhere a cleaner captures the spirit, the highs and the lows, of this occupation that often falls below the radar. The poems range across hospitals, offices, marae, clocks, schools, boat hulls, sneakers and more. The poets themselves, a mix of novice and established writers, are equally diverse. Through songs, rhymes, deeply insightful poems and poignant small stories, this anthology gives a voice to a profession both invisible and indispensable. Endorsement: Having walked the corridors of hospitals for more than a few years, I can tell you that cleaners can sometimes be the best doctors of all. And now I find they can write some great poems too. This book is wonderfully democratic. The art here is in the work done before and beyond the writing. The endless picking up, mopping, smoothing and shining. And always, it seems, for someone else. These are poems with strong forearms. My deepest congratulations to every poet in this collection – and my long overdue thanks. I will never walk on a neatly mopped floor again. - Glenn Colquhoun

Afghanistan, 1827. Suleiman stood in the carnage of his village. At twenty years old he was a man. “I am Suleiman! I take my birthright as Horse Master of all Farkhar". He raised his sword, pointing west to Persia. “No longer will Prince Omid’s men plunder Afghanistan. We will follow you, Persians. We will seize your horses and restore our honour. We will invade!” Welcome to The Saffron Runners, the adventures of a bold band of brothers who make a fantastic journey from Hindu Kush to desert to fabled cities and back across the Border of Flags. There is only one thing on their minds: The horses. And only one Horse Master who can lead them. A tale of daring, deception, desperation and incredible action, The Saffron Runners will have your heart pounding as you urge the heavenly horses on, gallop with the drinkers of the wind, and thrill to hot-blooded chases spiced with mystery and romance … and always, always, the lure of a destiny to be fulfilled. Outstandingly well researched and brimming with historical detail, if you want a real page-turner, this is it.
