  • The Commonplace Odesby Ian Wedde

    Auckland University Press 2013; US$ 8.99

    The Commonplace Odes was the first collection in eight years from major New Zealand poet Ian Wedde. It is a stunning collection: a group of odes, deliberately patterned but expressed in an easy, warm, contemporary voice, prefaced by an epode which, like a musical overture, traverses the themes and phrases of the work to follow, interspersed with two... more...

  • The Darling Northby Anne Kennedy

    Auckland University Press 2013; US$ 14.57

    In the seven long-ish poems of her new collection, multi-talented writer Anne Kennedy explores past and present, here and there, north and south, earth and paradise, hello and goodbye. In unfolding couplets, ‘The Darling North’ engages with a woman’s past, her lover, her new landscapes, exploring the results of yearning and directional... more...

  • Walking to Africaby Jessica Le Bas

    Auckland University Press 2013; US$ 14.57

    On an ordinary day, in ordinary New Zealand, an ordinary girl becomes extraordinary.

  • 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... more...

  • The Bells of St Babel'sby Allen Curnow

    Auckland University Press 2013; US$ 8.99

    Remarkable for the astonishing mastery of technique, voice and tone, the poems in The Bells of St Babel’s display Allen Curnow’s wonderful ear for the vernacular and his unerring sense of the absurdity of modish attitudes. more...

  • Valparaisoby Bob Orr

    Auckland University Press 2013; US$ 14.57

    A well-established poet with roots in the ‘Big Smoke’ generation of the 1960s and 1970s, Bob Orr publishes rarely and this is his first book for some time. His poems are spare and simple but they have a haunting lyrical quality that few readers (or listeners) can resist. The first section, ‘Mending Nets’ and the third and last,... more...

  • All Roads Lead to the Seaby Kapka Kassabova

    Auckland University Press 2013; US$ 11.99

    All Roads Lead to the Sea is a first collection of poetry from a young Bulgarian immigrant poet. Her work had already attracted considerable attention, with a special issue of Poetry New Zealand featuring her poems. Her moody, evocative poems brilliantly convey the rootlessness and restlessness of the immigrant, the mingled sense of loss and wonder... 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...
