The Grey Lynn Book – the life and times of New Zealand’s most fascinating suburb
Free Shipping until Christmas
When did Grey Lynn experience its only terrorist attack? Which unique street is lined with villas on one side and bungalows on the other? Were Pasifika immigrants pushed out by white professionals? Is there a “Gay Lynn”? Is it really New Zealand’s greenest suburb? Which local cinema was a Communist front? And what on earth does that name really mean?
From the area’s origins as a highly valued Maori stronghold to its status as one of the most desirable addresses in the country, Grey Lynn and its colourful stories are brought to life by Matt McEvoy in this beautifully produced book.
He digs down into the layers of the area’s remarkable and little-known history to show “GL” in all its diversity – cultures and people, institutions and traditions.
This beautifully produced, large-format hardback book is for everyone who loves Grey Lynn or has ever wondered what’s behind its cult status.
