Hone Tuwhare was born in the small settlement of Kokewai, just south of Kaikohe, New Zealand, and belonged to the Nga Puhi tribe. His family moved to Auckland following the death of his mother. His father encouraged reading and storytelling, looking to the Old Testament books for inspiration. In 1939, Mr Tuwhare began to write while carrying out his apprenticehsip at the Otahuhu Railway workshops. His first book, No Ordinary Sun, was published in 1964 and has been reprinted ten times. Many other collections followed, including Sapwood and Milk (1972) and Something Nothing (1973), both published by Trevor Reeves' Caveman Press. Mr Tuwhare was the recipient of many awards and fellowships in his lifetime, including Te Mata Poet Laureate in 1999 and two honorary doctorates in literature. He was named one of new Zealand's ten greatest living artists in 2003. 2011 saw the publication of Hone Tuwhare, Small Holes in the Silence: Collected Works (Random House), a large career-spanning volume of 300 poems, 43 new Maori translations and ten previously unpublished pieces.
