    Relaxed and intimate, engaging and wise, Incognito is Jessica Le Bas's first book. Her poems have been carefully collected but are wonderfully various.

    Auckland University Press 2013; US$ 11.99

    Jump is the first collection from poet Elizabeth Nannestad, who has also worked as a doctor and forensic psychiatrist.

Elizabeth Nannestad writes of these poems: They are all about movement around some pivot that appears for the... more...

  • Laden Choirsby Peter Wolfe

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    In 1973 the Australian novelist Patrick White won the Nobel Prize for Literature, the year that his great novel of family ties and change, The Eye of the Storm , was published and became a bestseller in America and Europe.
