How to Loiter In a Turf War: A Novel

Coco Solid

Like nothing you’ve read before, How to Loiter in a Turf War is a lucid, genre-bending, cinematic work of fiction from one of Aotearoa’s most versatile artists. It’s a day in the life of three friends beefing with their own city, Tamaki Makaurau. With gentrification closing in and racial tensions sweltering, the girls must cling to their friendship like a life raft, determined not to let their neighbourhood drift out to sea.


Fast, ferociously brilliant, crack-up funny and unforgettably true.

‘This book paints a picture of the Auckland I grew up in - when waiting for the 025 to town was a gamble, and the answer to the question ‘where are you from?‘ was an essay, not a sentence. Like everything she makes, Coco Solid imbues this book with fierce intelligence, laser-sharp specificity and cosmic warmth.’ - Rose Matafeo
