Maurice Gee, undoubtedly one of New Zealand's finest novel writers and winner of many literary awards and honours, is also the author of thirteen exquisitely crafted short stories which cover a 20 year period in his writing career. Each story demonstrates Gee's sharp observations of social life and life in New Zealand. Collected Stories contains the well-known short story 'The Loser', which has lost none of its impact and cruelty over the years.
