Description: Collins / Auckland City Council, Auckland, 1973, first edition.. 231 pp, 8vo (8 1/2" H), hard cover in dust jacket. "Winner of the $2,000 Auckland City Centennial Fiction Contest, 'Follow, Follow' must rank as one of the most impressive novels published in New Zealand since the war. In its delicate exploration of family relationships, its sensitive probing of the heart of a woman and its mature treatment of sex, it is the work of an imagination under strict artistic control..With subtlety and insight, Alice Glenday shows a hidden crime weighing upon a f amily and yet somehow being drawn into the texture of daily living. The artistry of (this book) is outstanding, with its deceptively placid opening contributing to the final effect, with believable characters who behave as in life rather t h a n i n f i ction, and with a New Zealand atmosphere of beach and cliff which is unobtrusively part of the entire fabric. Alice Glenday's story-telling gifts enable her to make this very moving novel a most successful fusion of a compulsive sto ry w it h d ee p a nd sympathetic human observation."
