              Michael Harlow is a poet, publisher and librettist who lives in Alexandra. Born in the USA with Greek and Ukrainian heritage, he settled in New Zealand in 1968. Michael has published seven collections of poetry including Giotto's Elephant and The Tram Conductor's Blue Cap, both f...inalists in the NZ Book Awards, and has been awarded a number of writer residencies. Five fresh poems and a number from Michael's past collections form his book on the hoopla of love--a theme long a part of this poet's fascination with the mysteries of human nature, and his job in finding the language and music to express it. Like the title poem, Michael Harlow bids 'the music of the heart to sing us alive'.

              Mr Clean and The Junkie is a 70s love story which begins at a Sydney casino and ends in a remote river valley in northern New Zealand. An Elvis Costello lookalike and the son of a local crime boss, Jon is weighed down with the burden of his filial responsibilities. But on his way... to the casino to launder a briefcase of his father's cash, he catches sight of the dark beauty of gambling junkie, Justine. With her on his arm, pursued by his father's hitmen and a relentless 70s soundtrack, Jon finds the strength to fight back against a life that's lost its shine. But it's not just up to him - somewhere there's a director with a camera rolling, and then the poet herself steps in as a sceptical narrator with a vested interest in her star-cross'd lovers. A startling and original work from a poet who's won awards both sides of the Tasman.

              Withstanding: 2016 (Paperback)

              Once Helen Jacobs delighted in walking the hills, but now she can only get as far as the local shops, and the nature she loves is pressed into the tiny garden she tends. It is here that she ponders the paradox of old age - a time of terrible losses and unexpected joys, and then f...inds herself moving one last time to a room with a view of the hills she loves. Helen's poems reverberate with the sound of feet - walking the slopes of great hills, skipping through leaves and dancing for the love of it. True to form, she ends with one foot stepping off again into the unknown. A powerful final collection from a much-loved Canterbury poet.

              Born in Siberia and raised in New Zealand from the age of 10, Polina Kouzminova weaves the threads of both cultures into poetry. These are poems of snow and water, and just as water reflects, her poems echo not only each other, but also her own reflections on the lover who leaves..., the family left behind and the universe that is waiting for her. Polina's world shimmers with snowflakes, glaciers and condensation on glass, and there is always a sense of missing. She writes: 'These are the reasons to leave late nights and fly back home'. A magical debut collection, from the poet who joins two worlds.

              In New Sea Land, Tim Jones tells the intimate story of the land and the sea. Awarded the New Zealand Society of Authors' Janet Frame Memorial Award for Literature, he writes of the mapping and re-naming of land and sea by those who came before him, and the places he travelled as ...a child and knows as a man and travels now. Some that crumbled to bone when the Earth heaved, some the stuff of myth and some the stuff of nightmare. And the poems imagine what the marriage of land and sea could become as one rises up to take the other away.

              When European settlers sailed to the bottom of the world, to Down Under, they took with them: tools, seed, livestock and their hope. They did not take monsters. Those crept aboard ... all by themselves.
