by Vivienne Plumb


Vivienne Plumb's latest collection of poetry crackles with a tinder-dry humour. The poems are little bridges, spanning the chasm between the minutae of everyday existence and the miraculous and marvellous.

'Sinuous, energetic yet casual poetry that grips the imagination and holds the eye.' - Alistair Paterson, Poetry NZ

'Brittle, self-conscious, wounding and extremely funny.' - Stuart McKenzie, The Evening Post

'One of the few all-rounders of NZ writing.' - Chris Orsman, The Evening Post
