Robin Fry lives in Petone, Hutt Valley and most of her poems are about this area - a place where there are river stones to be seen in her garden, jelly fish and oyster catchers on the beach at the end of her street and long, long buried bones at her back door. This is a charming collection of poetry – just enough to read at a sitting and then to come back for more, of simple but eye catching design and the right size to put in your pack or back pocket. A collection I feel to inspire secondary schools and to give pleasure to everyone who reads it.
Google Robin’s name to find more about her and about her large collection of poetry already published. If you have any difficulty buying the book go to makaropress.co.nz.
