The literary magazine Sport burst onto the scene in 1988 with a first issue featuring outstanding writing by a group of new writers who would go on to be some of the biggest names in New Zealand literature, including Elizabeth Knox, Jenny Bornholdt, Barbara Anderson, Anne Kennedy, Damien Wilkins, Nigel Cox. Sport 1 also featured established stars like Bill Manhire, Keri Hulme and Vincent O'Sullivan. Sport has gone on to publish an invigorating list of celebrated writers and new discoveries; Emily Perkins and Catherine Chidgey are just two writers who first appeared in print in Sport's pages. Great Sporting Moments is a little different from a conventional 'best of'. Greatest hits like Emily Perkins' 'Not Her Real Name' and Bill Manhire's 'My Sunshine' are here. So are hard to find gems like an autobiographical essay by Owen Marshall and a story of an infernal encounter in Venice by Elizabeth Knox. And true to Sport's mission, so is an exciting collection of stories, poems and essays by the yet-to-be-celebrated. Great Sporting Moments: The Best of Sport Magazine 1988-2004 defines the most exciting and creative era in New Zealand's literary history. It is also an entertaining and unpredictable reading experience that provides intriguing clues to what might happen next.
