  • Milk and Honeyby Michele Leggott

    Auckland University Press 2013; US$ 13.99

    Milk & Honey is a dance to the music of that future time. It looks back and remembers. It looks forward and tries to see what will happen next. Its theatre is the world turning round and what can be saved each day from a life of the imagination. It builds tentative structures from smaller parts that come and go like thought itself. It is a lamentation,... more...

  • Mirabile Dictuby Michele Leggott

    Auckland University Press 2013; US$ 14.57

    In 2008 Michele Leggott wrote a poem a week to record her term as the inaugural New Zealand Poet Laureate.

    Allen & Unwin 2012; US$ 11.81

  • Mothby Declan Greene

    Currency Press 2013; US$ 17.99

    Moth explores themes of friendship, bullying, mental illness, and the hierarchy of the schoolyard. Sebastian is a terminally unpopular fifteen-year-old suburban kid, with an overactive imagination and an obsession with anime and death. His only friend, Claryssa, is an emo Wiccan art-freak barely one rung higher than Sebastian on the social ladder.... more...

    Currency Press 2012; US$ 19.99

    A vivid, new collection of poetry from one of Tasmania?s premier talents, each of the poems in this work are influenced by Kathryn Lomer?s considerable skills as a storyteller and convey sensuality, fresh imagery, and tension between the grounded and the whimsical.

  • Of Muse, Meandering and Midnightby Samuel Wagan Watson

    University of Queensland Press 2012; US$ 12.99

    This is a striking debut volume by the winner of the Unaipon prize for unpublished Aboriginal writers. In a voice youthful, passionate and questioning, these poems reflect on growing up and on letting go; on urban dwellers in love and lust; and on the artist and his Murri community. The politics are unguarded and often amusing; and the language is... more...

    Auckland University Press 2013; US$ 14.57

    In this collection, Anna Jackson's poems deal thoughtfully and elegantly with motherhood, family, and the environment.
