Overview

If the poet's job is to provide a reflection of an entire world in a single teardrop, Karin Cox's haunting anthology, "Growth," does so admirably.

This collection of her finest poems—some previously published in anthologies around the world, others new; some rhyming, some free form—delivers beautiful sentiments, melancholy moments and some delightfully lyrical figurative language, all the while charting the poet's personal growth over several years.

While introspective, Karin's work avoids self-obsession by interspersing political and broader global themes with the personal. What results is a whimsical anthology that brings to mind the challenges of just being human and fitting into a world that sometimes feels like a tight squeeze.

A must-read for lovers of the English language and a wonderful gift for poetry aficionados, "Growth" will continue to bloom in the reader's mind long after the last page has been turned.

Meet the Author

I am a 35-year-old Australian author who spent more than a decade working as an editor in Australia and the UK. I am actively seeking an agent or publisher and have several other projects up my sleeve (The Day of the Danae Shee is conceived as a trilogy and I am part-way through the second novel in the series).I now work fulltime as an inhouse author of non-fiction natural history, travel guides, and children's fiction and have written and published more than 28 titles since 2003. You can see some of my work at editorandauthor.com/see-karins-work.html. I also write fiction (in several genres) and poetry part time, for the sheer joy of it.
