  • Someone Else's Lifeby Kapka Kassabova

    Auckland University Press 2013; US$ 14.57

    Kapka Kassabova quickly attracted attention with her first collection All Roads Lead to the Sea (AUP, 1997), which won the NZSA Award for the Best First Book of Poetry, and her subsequent book, Dismemberment (AUP, 1998). With both these books out of print, Someone Else?s Life includes 26 poems from the first two and a substantial number of new poems,... more...

  • In Continentsby Richard Reeve

    Auckland University Press 2013; US$ 14.57

    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 as stewards of the... more...

  • The Settler's Plotby Alex Calder

    Auckland University Press 2013; US$ 29.15

    Europeans arrive on a beach, make markets and push inland. They take the land and transform it. They make themselves at home; they dream of other places. And the stories they write take shape in settings – the beach, the farm, the bush, the suburb – that become imaginary versions of actual places. Those settings sometimes host stories that are too... more...

  • Calypsoby Bob Orr

    Auckland University Press 2013; US$ 14.57

    Following his very popular collection Valparaiso, poet Bob Orr presents his new book Calypso. Orr?s poems have a wistful yet forceful beauty, presenting images with depth, colour, light, and the narrative drive and cadences of a true storyteller. In the first of Calypso?s four sections, ‘Purple Octopus?, the poet guides us on a voyage though space... more...

  • Fast Talkerby David Eggleton

    Auckland University Press 2013; US$ 14.57

    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 over the Kiwi psyche, the South Pacific,... more...

  • The Tram Conductor's Blue Capby Michael Harlow

    Auckland University Press 2013; US$ 14.57

    Poetry, Michael Harlow writes, is when words sing. In The Tram Conductor?s Blue Cap, words do sing; they also shout and whisper, riddle and recur, express and evade. Though these poems are often allegorical and philosophical, the real underlies the imagined (while the imagination invents the real), so we meet a stranger in the Oyster Bar at Grand... more...

  • Selected Poems of James K. Baxterby Paul Millar

    Auckland University Press 2013; US$ 21.88

    By 1972, when James K. Baxter died aged just 46, his colourful life and distinctive poetry had captured the imagination of New Zealanders as no literary figure before him. Selected Poems of James K. Baxter is a new generous and authoritative selection of Baxter?s verse for general readers and students by New Zealand?s leading Baxter scholar, Paul... more...

  • The Gas Leakby Anna Jackson

    Auckland University Press 2013; US$ 14.57

    A thoughtful, disturbing and darkly funny new collection by Anna Jackson, The Gas Leak offers a glimpse of the gaps and cracks that can exist between family members in everyday life. In the first section, a gas-fitter slips in and out of his own and other people?s lives with his ‘master key?, concerned by his strained marriage and his adulterous... more...

  • In the Glass Caseby C. K. Stead

    Auckland University Press 2013; US$ 29.15

    Over a quarter of a century, C. K. Stead has built up a widely accessible collection of reviews and critical essays on New Zealand literature. In the Glass Case covers a wide spectrum of New Zealand writers, who are examined from a remarkably consistent viewpoint. The title is symbolic: New Zealand books were once held in a glass-fronted bookcase... more...

  • Photographsby Albert Wendt

    Auckland University Press 2013; US$ 14.57

    In Albert Wendt's first collection for over a decade, snapshots of the close and familiar contrast with strange and mythical sequences from a vast Pacific epic in progress and a vivid impressionistic montage of global travel in the late twentieth century. The rich diversity and range of Photographs is astonishing, as this complex writer moves with... more...
