              Leaving the country you grew up in is both heart-wrenching and liberating. Ish writes of her move from New Zealand to Scotland, to find that tea leaves in a pot still make a cup of tea, but one that's somehow different. Then she winds back to other more painful leave-takings that... a pot of tea has no answer for. And Ish finds as she writes that what she misses most in her new life is the salty and reassuring place where fish grow. An accomplished first collection from a young poet that speaks directly and with great beauty of the stuff of the heart.

              There was a time ??when Heidi lived in? a house on Grass St that once belonged to ?poet Lauris Edmond. The hillside garden grew tulips and poems, and in the house with its view of the harbour, Heidi wrote poems of her own. But always there is the possibility of flight, and one da...y she takes off to London. In this wintry? and sometimes brutal place, the poet locates what it is she is missing. And then, like so many before her, decides to return home. Possibility of flight is a thoughtful and intimate first collection that ends unexpectedly with fireworks.

              Bones in the Octagon (Paperback)

              Carolyn McCurdie hails from the deep south and her poems are made at the hem of a mother's checked tablecloth, the rim of a rain-starved garden and the raw edges of a southern landscape where the elements collide with myth. She pulls on her boots to go out into the world and writ...e of it - acute observation of what she finds combines with her feeling that in the places of heat and light where people gather, there is magic. Compassionate and subversive, these poems speak of a wild world where rules are made to be broken and spiderwebs are made to be kept, and women with foreheads 'like untidy knitting' dance with holy exuberance. A long-awaited first collection.

              In Native bird, Bryan Walpert - who arrived here from the United States a decade ago - writes of what it's been like to be an observer or 'birdwatcher' in a land whose physical and cultural geographies he is still learning to name. With precision and insight, he weaves meditation...s on birds with the demands of family life in semi-rural, wind-charged Manawatu. At the shifting borders between homes and hearts, prose and poetry, call and song - the poet summons what it means to adapt to new landscapes in an arresting collection that speaks to us all.

Peace Warriors tells the dramatic stories of people who chose non-violent resistance in times of conflict--stories of young me...n and women from New Zealand and around the world. Young readers will discover that peaceful resistance can be as effective as military force, and that people power can change history.

              Goblin Market: 2016 Short Film Edition
               

              Goblin Market: 2016 Short Film Edition (Paperback)

              By Rossetti, Christina G.

              Christina Rossetti's 19th century masterpiece, Goblin Market, is a dark, allegorical fairy tale about two sisters, Laura and Lizzie, which explores the universal themes of eroticism and desire, addiction and betrayal, sisterhood, sacrifice and, ultimately, liberation. Our film re...-imagines the poem in a contemporary setting, with a modern day seduction in a drug-infused underground club. When this ends in betrayal, Laura dwindles in a pall of withdrawal and despair. Desperate to comfort her sister, Lizzie sets out to procure the drug she craves, but instead finds herself on a wild headland overlooking a boundless sea. Here the goblins await her. Lizzie is drawn into their bacchanal, discovering and fully embodying her own sensual power. Triumphant, she returns having won the fiery antidote to Laura's poison, and then watches as she fits and writhes, not knowing whether it has saved or killed her. But the next morning, entangled, both women wake as from a dream - to begin anew. Crossing the world to its antipodal point, our film draws both from its roots and from the spirits of this land on which we stand, to bring to life Rossetti's mythic, feminist anthem. One which speaks to the power of women, united - with each other and with our own essential nature, our wildness and eros - to uplift ourselves, and one another.
