By Andrews, Jean
The poems in Lunatica derive from simple things around us in everyday life: the wild animals which live amongst us, domesticated ones who live with us, landscapes, cityscapes, people we observe but don't know, and the moon shining down, serene and silent, on all of it.

A collection of war poetry that emerged from the Spanish Civil War. It chronicles the consequences of war on women and children: loss of menfolk at the front, physical deprivation, and carpet bombing of cities.
This is the ideal field guide for both the weekend shell collector and the professional malacologist. It identifies more than 270 shells of the Florida coast by both common and scientific names. Each shell is fully described and beautifully photgraphed.
These poems are about love and loss, the burden of memory, culture and ancestry. They journey from bereavement and heartbreak to reconciliation and a return to normality. Grief is not always unrelenting. On this journey there are spits and spots of humour to leaven the gloom.
Many of these poems respond to current events of the past twenty years, others take a longer view, exploring how the past and the recent past resonate in the most mundane aspects of everyday life; a kind of condensed open conversation with the turbulent times we live in.
