About this product
- DescriptionChester Farlowe was twelve when the coward Stronson shot his daddy down. Chester left the vast cattle ranches of New Zealand/s central Volcanic Plateau for the badlands of urban Auckland. There he was given shelter by Henry Stroud, proprietor of the I Fry takeaway wagon, and re-christened Mr Dog. There, too, he met the girl, Spoons. Now, six years later, he is back in those lands where the pylons march across the sky, and looking for revenge. Stronson is waiting, and there must be a showdown. But first there are others to contend with - Boss Lenx, Cook, the Sultation Kid, the seductive and inscrutable Miss Peet. The Cowboy Dog is a stunning extension of the series of vels in which Nigel Cox reconfigures New Zealand experience through the most resonant myths of our time.
- Author BiographyNigel Cox was born in 1951 in Pahiatua and grew up in Masterton and the Hutt Valley. His early working life reads like an author trying to find his way: advertising account executive, assembly line worker at Ford, deck hand, coalman, door-to-door turkey salesman, driver. Later he worked as a bookseller and as Senior Writer at Te Papa. With fellow New Zealander Ken Gorbey he led the project team that created the Jewish Museum Berlin. He published five novels including Tarzan Presley and Responsibility, both named as runners-up in the Montana New Zealand Book Awards. The Cowboy Dog was completed in the weeks before Nigel died in July 2006.
