              Erin's mother has motor neurone disease and has decided to take her fate into her own hands. As Erin looks back at her twenty-six-year-old self, she can finally tell the story of the unimaginable task she faced one winter. 'Chloe Lane's The Swimmers is by turns touching, reson...ate, fiercely candid, and beautifully written. In this novel about a daughter's attempt to help her mother receive a merciful death, Lane has sidestepped the cliches, and captured the enigma of what it means to save a life by ending one.'

              This book is the first to represent the full extent of the work of James Brown. With personal lyrics, narrative desire, short takes, anti-poetry, stolen lines, and hill-climbing, Selected Poems is a showcase of one of New Zealand's essential poetic voices. 'James Brown is the... New Zealand poet laureate of torpor, resignation and exhaustion ... with intermittent bouts of fanatical bicycle riding. The miracle is that he can make it all so interesting and darkly humorous and weirdly moving.' -Gregory O'Brien 'This is not a poetry book for the faint-hearted.' -Pania Brown (James's sister) 'The finding of poetry in unlikely places expands our concept of what poetry is - if a poem can be found in the heart of an ATM, where can it not be found?' -Gabe Atkinson

              A timely collection of new and previously published work by one of Aotearoa's most acclaimed poets, How to Be Happy Though Human is Kate Camp's superb seventh book of poetry. It is published simultaneously in Canada and the United States by House of Anansi Press. Kate Camp's p...oetry has been described by critics as 'fearless', 'wry, sympathetic, affable, deadpan', and 'containing a surprising radicalism and power'. Incorporating new, previously unpublished work and a selection of important poems from her six earlier collections, How to Be Happy Though Human represents a new chapter in her career.
