Book: New Zealanders: The Field Guide (October 2021)

By Tom Sainsbury

October 18, 2021

A guide to the weird and wonderful inhabitants of New Zealand, and the places you’ll find them.

After years of mimicking celebrities and Kiwi stereotypes on social media, comedian Tom Sainsbury has compiled all his favourite character types into a book.  His array of New Zealand heroes includes the useless farmhand who is forever jack-knifing the tractor trailer, the martyr mother who constantly guilt-trips her children and the officious New Zealander who loves narking on his office co-workers for the mildest of misdemeanours.  All these descriptions are lovingly collated into a concise, easy-to-use field guide that’ll give you an in-depth insight into the people of Aotearoa.
