The latest in the series, this third volume showcases Janice Freegard, Reihana Robinson, and Katherine Liddy, three poets with vastly different yet complementary styles. Freegard writes quirky and often surreal poems about a Wellington inhabited by strange animals, art, and people. Robinson's poems are tropical but gritty, with many set on Pitcairn Island and interspersed with touching lyrics about family and identity in fractured English. Liddy is a promising young poet who has an unusual interest in and an ear for rhyme and rhythm; while some of her poems are texturally dense, she has an impressive range and a pleasing variety.
