  • Early Days Yetby Allen Curnow

    Auckland University Press 2013; US$ 14.57

    Early Days Yet is a major publication in which the greatest of all New Zealand poets presents twelve previously uncollected poems that are strong, rich and brilliant. These poems lead off into the past and introduce readers to the poems published since 1970, in addition to a selection from the 40s, 50s and 60s. Vivid childhood memories predominate... more...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Beauties of the Octagonal Poolby Gregory O'Brien

    Auckland University Press 2013; US$ 14.57

    Gregory O?Brien?s first collection since Afternoon of an Evening Train (2005), Beauties of the Octagonal Pool is centred on the ‘octagonal pool? of the Waitemata Harbour. Arranged in eight sections, the book collects poems written from and out of a variety of times, locations and experiences, from the water-frontages of Fiji, Fiordland and the Mediterranean... more...

  • Briefcaseby John Adams

    Auckland University Press 2013; US$ 14.57

    After an argument with his wife, Verity, Jason Button threw a stapler which struck her on the face. Is he guilty of violent assault? Or was it just a matter of bad luck? Briefcase, the first book of poetry by Judge and poet John Adams, is a mélange of poems – in traditional and experimental forms – and other texts: affidavits, police reports, a sudoku... more...

  • Star Wakaby Robert Sullivan

    Auckland University Press 2013; US$ 14.57

    Published on the cusp of the new millennium, Sullivan's third book of poems, Star Waka, came with some strings attached: each poem had to feature either a star, a waka, or the ocean. Within these parameters, and in 2001 lines, Sullivan creates 100 poems that, he says, themselves function like a waka: 'members of the crew change, the rhythm and the... more...

  • Clungby Sonja Yelich

    Auckland University Press 2013; US$ 14.57

    Clung is a first solo collection by a poet who appeared in AUP New Poets 2. These are the wry amused colourful poems of a woman stuck at home with small children and listening to the radio, which brings other worlds, new words and voices, into the midst of their domestic life. This clash of cultures is bizarre, funny, magical. In other poems, summer... more...

  • Laminationsby Murray Edmond

    Auckland University Press 2013; US$ 14.57

    Murray Edmond, a well-established poet, writes in Laminations a savage, witty new collection that reflects the times we live in. These polished verses lament the end of the century and celebrate sound, rhythm and word play. Edmond's work sits at the intersection of the personal and historical, and although it is tough and challenging, it is also richly... more...
