I loved The Girl Below and The Predictions is another singular coming of age story by the talented Bianca Zander It starts in a 1970s Coromandel commune with a gloriously mucky pig shit shovelling opening scene A stranger comes to town or precisely Gaialands in the guise of a Californian hippy Shakti is a brilliant character A fortune telling free loving trickster spirit she destabilises the spartan ideology of the commune She holds a predictions ritual for the 7 teenagers and it s this prediction that propels the story forward will Poppy our heroine fulfil or defy her prophesy Is it destiny or a load of shit I revelled in Poppy s journey from the rickety commune cabins where they ate dense brown bread and home grown vegetables to the music festival Nambassa where the attendees stripped naked and danced in body paint Poppy and Lucas leave the commune a bad social experiment in Lucas mind for Auckland and then London Lucas wants to make it in the music world and rather than emulating obvious 80s phenomenons like The Smiths or Joy Division Zander chooses to explore the world of hair metal Tight lycra pants big blond perms loads of drugs this part of the novel is a trip Zander is very skilled at infusing ordinary human experience with a glam rock sensibility And the settings are spectacular We move from the wild green of New Zealand to London suats mansions European metal band venues back to the commune and to Wimmin Only Grey Lynn villas of the late 80s All are vividly drawn with a cinematic uality about them I kept thinking that this book would make a good filmThere is a lot on the surface to make this a page turny kind of novel and below Zander grapples with some big ideas How much our life is determined by other people s vision of it What constitutes good parenting Can children be brought up by a village or is there something essential about the mother child bond What if this bond shuts out other people in the child s life Having known people who grew up on communes I was intrigued to see how the characters might embrace or shun their upbringing This is an excellent follow up to The Girl Below filled with thrilling plot turns Zander has stepped back on the magi realism but plays on our own willingness to believe in the occult I can t wait to read what she comes up with next
