    The poems in All Cretans are Liars are written for friends, lovers, for a small son, for explaining solitude or betrayal – they start out this way but soon take on their own life and walk out to meet us.

  • Broken Windows: Reflections in Poetry and Photographyby Steve Bedney

    Skyhorse Publishing 2012; US$ 14.95

    Within this group of poems are reflections on love, loss, and pain, some on an individual level, but others on a grander scale.

  • Der afrikanische Freundby Johannes Gelich

    Eher unfreiwillig ist der namenlose Ich-Erzähler in seine Geburtsstadt gekommen: Er muss sich um die Beerdigung seines Vaters kümmern.

Da trifft er zufällig Max, einen alten Schulkameraden, der ihn auf seine Burg einlädt, wo er mit Freunden das alljährliche "Weekend" vor Beginn... more...

  • The Drummerby Ian Wedde

    Auckland University Press 2013; US$ 15.99

    The Drummer is Ian Wedde's eighth collection and it is plump with exquisite visual images, lost faith in language, revelations of intense beauty and literary allusions (from the Romantics to the New Zealand tradition). This is what the author writes about his collection: 'The word 'transport' seems to me to describe an event anywhere between a bus-trip... more...

  • Frissureby Kathleen Jamie; Brigid Collins

In each situation... more...

  • Good Businessby Ian Wedde

    Auckland University Press 2010; US$ 15.99

    From jaunty and self-deprecating to serious and nostalgic, the poems in this collection paint a vivid portrait of Wellington businesses and institutions.
