  • The Time of the Giantsby Anne Kennedy

    Auckland University Press 2013; US$ 14.57

    Time of the Giants is an original, delightful book of poems from the winner of the poetry section in the 2004 Montana Book Awards. This new work, also a sequence, is much less tied to the poet?s own experience. Wonderfully inventive and both disturbing and amusing, it focuses on a family of giants and in particular the daughter and her efforts to... more...

  • The Drummerby Ian Wedde

    Auckland University Press 2013; US$ 14.57

    The Drummer is Ian Wedde's eighth collection and it is plump with exquisite visual images, lost faith in language, revelations of intense beauty and literary allusions (from the Romantics to the New Zealand tradition). This is what the author writes about his collection: 'The word 'transport' seems to me to describe an event anywhere between a bus-trip... more...

  • The Commonplace Bookby Elizabeth Smither

    Auckland University Press 2013; US$ 21.88

    I read this on a sandwich board outside a coffee shop. I stopped, pulled out my notebook, and leaned against a shopfront. You?re nothing but a piece of crockery and a bit of blood. – Epictetus How sharp and bloodtinglingly lovely on a clear early autumn day. The sun sharp on the shop panes, clear shadows on the foot­paths, faces outlined in a way... more...
