In this collaboration with artist Nigel Brown, Glenn imagines the northern gods of his Celtic heritage engaging with the atua Maori of the south, and creates a new mythology for those in this country who "have in their arms both ways".


Nigel Brown has handwritten and illustrated Glenn's words to bring to like the story of Tama, a child of the gods who is linked both to Europe and to the landscape of Aotearoa.


The poems sprawl across the pages to clash, bend and ultimately fuse traditional Celtic and Maori motifs, song forms and poetry. The result is a feast for the eyes, ears and tongue.
