  • The Tudor Styleby Elizabeth Smither

    Auckland University Press 2013; US$ 14.57

    One of New Zealand's leading poets, Elizabeth Smither has published many collections and has won the New Zealand Book Award for Poetry. Her poems are characteristically slim, so the substantial selection of her work gathered in The Tudor Style has a striking effect. As Bill Manhire says, Smither's poems 'wave to one another, open doors and climb through... more...

  • Milk and Honeyby Michele Leggott

    Auckland University Press 2013; US$ 14.57

    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...

    Auckland University Press 2013; US$ 14.57

    Voice Carried My Family is a stunning collection by Robert Sullivan.

  • At the White Coastby Janet Charman

    Auckland University Press 2013; US$ 14.57

    If ‘mother won?t come to us?, New Zealanders must go to mother . . . Here an expat poet finds herself in alien yet strangely familiar territory, a place her ancestors ‘got off?.
