Could I suggest one of the stories of NZ’s most famous author Katherine Mansfield, ‘In a German Pension?’ This is a short story for people like me who aren’t keen on short stories:), By: Lisa Hill on September 6, 2019 at 10:14 am, I love a really well developed character in a book and Pearly sounds like he is quite the character! He’s actually a nice man, and the book made me see that real estate agents (who we tend to think of as being only interested in commission) have an important role to play in helping us to find our dream home, which is actually the most important purchase most of us ever make, and makes such a big difference to whether we are happy or not.

The Pearly Gates bridge is available in both standard humbucker and Trembucker spacing. Indeed, I kept thinking about our local real-estate agent when I was reading this. Publisher: Vintage (Penguin Random House New Zealand), 2019, 281 pages Pearly is a recognisable face around town, and admired for his long ago feats playing rugby for Otago although injury forced him out before he could achieve his ambition to play for the All Blacks. A vintage take on our original hot rodded humbucker, it gives you all of the classic …, Capture the weathered midrange growl and grit of an original ’59 ES-330 with our …. Pearly is, of course, on the organising committee of the 125th reunion of the school, and it’s his role to pick up the school’s most preeminent Old Boy and ferry him around. It’s a surprisingly interesting book, given the quotidian nature of its characterisation and plot. Along with some other stupid out-of-character things he’s done, such as hugging an attractive divorcee when a sale goes through and she rapidly rounds on him as one of a number of men ‘hitting on’ her now that she is on her own.
