The first book of a significant new talent in the New Zealand literary scene. Reviews of Tim Upperton’s poems: ‘… in its trembling delicacy, a marvel of verbal concordance and harmony, seeking to transcend the act of memory which is its subject.’ – David Eggleton ‘… master of the surprising image … well made; thoughtful and crafted to last.’ – Anne French ‘… gentle, knowing puns and an almost filmic precision … delicate use of aural felicities, its playfulness and yet the way it reinfuses an ordinary sight with fresh wonder.’ – Emma Neale ‘… a beautifully written poem, a singing poem … fluent and skilful.’ – Jack Ross About the Author Tim Upperton teaches creative writing at Massey University. He has won several prizes for his poems, which have been published in literary magazines in New Zealand and overseas. He is a former poetry editor for Bravado and judged its International Poetry Competition in 2008. This 2009 Steele Roberts Paperback is in Mint condition.
