A Kiss in Space

Mary Jo Salter

A Kiss in Space

From the first poem, a hot-air balloon trip over Chartres, to the last, the title poem in which an American astronaut visits the Mir space-station, this outstanding fourth collection by American poet Mary Jo Salter - her first to be published in the UK - draws the reader into the long distances of the imagination and the intimacies of the heart."The book of poetry I loved best this year." Les Murray, TLS

C. K. Stead

Painting the Bamboo Tree

Gail Dendy

Painting the Bamboo Tree

In her mesmerising first collection, Gail Dendy unleashes a panoply of sound, smells, colours, rhythms from her native South Africa in a sequence of poems which, though dealing with the familiar, the intimate and the every-day, have a haunting strangeness.

...her poems have a delicate beauty. Her strength is her finesse and throughout her book the haunting understatement is a delight.

Paul McDonald, PQR Winter 1999

Small Stories of Devotion

Dinah Hawken

Small Stories of Devotion

Dinah Hawken won the 1987 Commonwealth Poetry Prize with her first book.

In this stunning and unforgettably elegiac book, female sensuality and spirituality are celebrated, standing together rather than split the way Christian culture has encouraged. It is a journey of discovery using very precise language, myths and contemporary writing to question our spiritual condition.
