Aspiring Daybook The Diary of Elsie Winslow
Aspiring Daybook The Diary of Elsie Winslow
In Aspiring Daybook, poet Annabel Wilson tells of a year in the life Elsie Winslow, who has just returned from Europe to Wanaka to take care of her terminally ill brother and finds herself thinking about love in ways she didn't expect.

Like the mountains that surround her and the lake that greets her every morning with a different face, Elsie's story is a fractured, sedimentary and reflective thing, exploring the hidden darkness inside the beauty that is everywhere.

Elsie's story is told in the form of a fictionalised diary packed with poems, snapshots, conversations and letters. The result is an immersive, genre-bending book that shines with a particular light only found in the deep South.

Because a Womans Heart is Like a Needle at the Bottom of the Ocean
Because a Womans Heart is Like a Needle at the Bottom of the Ocean
Through fun and gore, love and monsters, Sugar Magnolia Wilson's riveting first collection takes readers inside a world where past and present, fiction and fact, author and subject collide. Playful and yet not so sunny, these poems invite you in with extravagant and surprising imagery, only to reveal the uneasy, Frankenstein world within. `Sugar Magnolia Wilson's work punches holes into a parallel universe which explains ourselves back to us. Because a Woman's Heart is Like a Needle at the Bottom of the Ocean uncovers deep secrets within the reader through Wilson's intelligence, craft and close observation of being. It's an exceptional and uplifting collection which is a joy to read.' - Pip Adam `These poems are clever, intriguing, resistant, arresting, strange, funny and pleasingly unusual. Humorously self-conscious and with a wonderful facility with imagery, the overwhelming evidence in this collection is that Wilson is a significant new writer with a distinctive voice of her own.' - Mark Williams

Bees
Bees
'Swooningly glorious' The Times

'Indisputably her best volume' Sunday Times

The Bees is Carol Ann Duffy's first collection of poems as Poet Laureate. In it she uses her full poetic range: there are drinking songs, love poems, poems of political anger; there are elegies, too, for beloved friends, and - most movingly - the poet's own mother.

Woven and weaving through the book is its presiding spirit: the bee. Sometimes the bee is Duffy's subject, sometimes it strays into the poem, or hovers at its edge. In the end, Duffy's point is clear: the bee symbolizes what we have left of grace in the world, and what is most precious and necessary for us to protect. The Bees, at once intimate and public, is a work of great power from one of our most cherished poets.

Big Weather Poems of Wellington
Big Weather Poems of Wellington
Capturing the vivacity and diversity of the capital, this poetic portrait is a celebration of Wellington and the creative life it inspires.

Beginning with the inner city and harbour, the 100 poems move into the suburbs and parks, before heading to outer areas - and into the twenty-first century. Major New Zealand poets, visitors from offshore and stimulating newer voices have all been moved to put pen to paper to record their responses to the steep streets, myriad people and political energy, to the food and cable car, the cenotaphs and wharves and, of course, the big weather.

First published in 2000 and expanded in 2009, this perennial favourite is being reprinted due to popular demand.

Blood Ties New & Selected Poems: 1963 to 2016
Blood Ties New & Selected Poems: 1963 to 2016
Woven from the sharp and tensile strands of memory, many of the poems in this collection return to the primal pains of neglect and damage in childhood. Emotional memory is anchored in the specific detail of an era - the selection is laced with dreams of flight and memories of West Coast town rituals, places and people - and fans out to draw on local and international history, exploring with wit, anger, imagination and grief the ways in which Aotearoa still carries the wounds of colonization and class. Confronting the ghosts of bereavement and loss, in this gripping and powerful collection Holman leads us from remembrance and elegy, in all their guises, to a kind of 'spring of the soul'. Poetry and song have their own healing gifts: here, Jeffrey Paparoa Holman calls on their potency to set the mind free.
