  • Jumpby Elizabeth Nannestad

    Auckland University Press 2013; US$ 14.57

    Jump is the first collection from poet Elizabeth Nannestad, who has also worked as a doctor and forensic psychiatrist. These brief poems come to us in a singular voice, deceptively deft and simple. They are capable of song, wit and mystery. Elizabeth Nannestad writes of these poems: They are all about movement around some pivot that appears for the... more...

  • Leaving the Highwayby Mark Williams

    Auckland University Press 2013; US$ 29.15

    Leaving the Highway was the first critical study of some of New Zealand?s major novelists: Janet Frame, Keri Hulme, Witi Ihimaera, Maurice Gee, Ian Wedde, and C. K. Stead. Here Mark Williams concentrates on their important works to explore how deeply rooted anxieties about New Zealand?s bicultural situation and national identity are articulated in... more...

  • Get Someby Sonja Yelich

    Auckland University Press 2013; US$ 14.57

    Sonja Yelich?s Get Some is a daring departure from her previous, award-winning collection, Clung. It follows an American marine, Edgar, serving in Iraq, and the responses of his family back home to his tour of ‘doody?. Yelich vividly contrasts his life with his family?s, and serves up a whirlwind of perspectives on the war and contemporary American... more...

  • The Pop-up Book of Invasionsby Fiona Farrell

    Auckland University Press 2013; US$ 14.57

    The Book of Invasions – Lebor Gabála Érenn – is a compilation of manuscripts describing the very specific discovery of Ireland (‘on the fifteenth, on a Saturday?) following the Creation and the Flood. The Pop-Up Book of Invasions is Fiona Farrell?s poetic response to a six-month stay in Ireland as inaugural recipient of the Rathcoola Residency in... more...

  • Geography for the Lostby Kapka Kassabova

    Auckland University Press 2013; US$ 14.57

    In Geography for the Lost, travelling poems speak from different parts of the world and different moments in time, but always of the many ways to be lost and disoriented: in a place, in the past, in fear, in the very quickness of life. The voices here – from a Roman housewife to a Chinese bar-owner in Berlin or an Argentine DJ – are of the heartsick,... 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. In her collection of poems Mirabile Dictu (amazing to say), she relates the wonders of those 12 months, which took her to Matahiwi Marae in Hawke?s Bay to receive her brilliant sky-blue, specially carved tokotoko, Te Kikorangi; through a time... more...

  • Young Knowledge: the Poems of Robin Hydeby Michele Leggott

Drawing on the 500 poems extant Michele Leggott has chosen 300 divided into five sections. Her aim is to arrive at a better understanding of the 15 years... more...

  • HUSKby Chris Price

    Auckland University Press 2013; US$ 14.57

    Husk is the first collection of poems by writer Chris Price. Though a debut collection, this is polished, elegant, mature work; it introduces an original new talent. The poems cover a wide range of interests, themes and tones but there is an alertness, a sense of delight about all of them. more...

  • The Yellow Buoyby C. K. Stead

    Auckland University Press 2013; US$ 14.57

    C. K. Stead has always swum through literature, cultures, surroundings both physical and social, with a deft stroke. Completed in his eightieth year, The Yellow Buoy sees the poet firmly attached to his memories, attuned to his craft and attentive to his world. The book is divided into three parts: ‘The Yellow Buoy?, ‘The Silence? and ‘The Green Enclave?.... more...
