              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.

              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.

              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.

              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.
