    In his third collection, In Continents, Richard Reeve examines a catalogue of historical incidents – from the violence of Tiberius and Edward III to the death of James Cook’s Polynesian companion, Tupaia – to illustrate the habitual barbarity, selfishness and stupidity of humans, in counterpoint with our prospective responsibility... more...

  • Fast Talkerby David Eggleton

    Auckland University Press 2013; US$ 11.99

    A collection of poetry by a self-confessed ‘ranter’, Fast Talker is energetic, contemporary, and filled with an emphatic, punchy political and social awareness. Some of the poems are indeed Eggleton’s well-known ‘rants’ – part showman patter, part incantation, part prophetic diatribe – that range helter skelter... more...

  • Selected Poems of James K. Baxterby Paul Millar

  • Fool Moonby Murray Edmond; Joanna Forsberg

    Auckland University Press 2013; US$ 11.99

    Fool Moon is a sparkling collection by a well-known poet. Constructed in four parts for the phases of the moon, it is as lively and irreverent as ever.

One poem is made up of lines... more...

  • Good Businessby Ian Wedde

    Auckland University Press 2013; US$ 11.99

    Ian Wedde’s new poetry collection Good Business, his fourteenth, finds him still in business. At the heart of the book is a stunning sequence, ‘Good Business’, at once an ode to walking the side-streets of central Wellington and an elegy for the poet’s father. Quietly hilarious, the poems are titled after Wellington businesses... more...

  • Cold Snackby Janet Charman

  • From Manoa to a Ponsonby Gardenby Albert Wendt

    Auckland University Press 2013; US$ 11.99

    Ultimately a book about ageing and the consideration of death, this collection moves from the warm valley winds of Hawai‘i to the seasons of a garden in Auckland. In Hawai‘i Wendt watches the changing shadows of the Ko‘olau mountains from his verandah; considers the nature of mauli, the seat of life; walks protected in his partner’s... more...
