              Bones in the Octagon (Paperback)

              By McCurdie, Carolyn

              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.

              "The places in Annabel Hawkins' poems are close at hand or within sight of the horizon, at the border between study and first jobs and whatever comes next, in a city that for now - for better or worse - is home. She ticks off the places she finds herself: Thorndon Pool, Salamanca... Road in Kelburn, the back roads of Otaki, Fiji. And from time to time longs to be elsewhere. But Annabel comes to realise that there's a time for going and a time for staying put, and home can also be a feeling"--Back cover.

              When the earth thrashes under us like a fish, the ordinary words we use to describe the devastation afterwards never seem enough. Lower Hutt poet Keith Westwater harnasses instead the language of science, journalism and myth to adequately express the horror of the Canterbury quak...es [...]

              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.

Growing up dirt-poor in Willoughby, Warwickshire, in 1814, Martha dared to imagine a different life. Now she is a wealthy and respectable Wellington settler half ...a world away.

              The morning she wakes to, the island she watches, the lover she adores - each one undresses or unwraps itself. For Rachel Tobin nakedness is a synonym for beauty. It is is also straight-talking in the face of pretence and disguise on one hand and the reality of sadness and death ...on the other. It is that gift and that curse: an unedited heart. Say it Naked is a finely wrought first collection.
