Adrienne Jansen

Adrienne writes fiction, non-fiction and poetry. She has lived and worked among immigrants in New Zealand for many years, and her writing draws strongly on that experience. As well as A Line of Sight she has written three other novels,  The Score, Spirit Writing and Floating the Fish on Bamboo. She has also written a collection of poetry, a stone sea and a shadow tree, and among her non-fiction work is The Crescent Moon: The Asian Face of Islam in New Zealand with photography by Ans Westra, and most recently Migrant Journeys: New Zealand taxi drivers tell their stories (co-author).
