Adrienne Jansen

Adrienne Jansen has lived and worked among immigrants in New Zealand for many years, an experience her writing draws on strongly. Much of her writing has been working alongside migrants, to enable them to tell their stories. Among other books, she wrote the text for The Crescent Moon: The Asian Face of Islam in New Zealand, with photography by Ans Westra , and most recently co-authored Migrant Journeys: New Zealand taxi drivers tell their stories with Liz Grant. She has written four novels: Spirit Writing, Floating the Fish on Bamboo, The Score and A Line of Sight, and three collections of poetry. She lives in Titahi Bay, north of Wellington, with her family.
