Just This: Poems by Brian Turner

The poet’s ongoing love affair with his Central Otago home lies at the heart of this rich and compelling new collection that explores the politics of relationships and relationships themselves. Through a combination of people and place that gives the poems color and humor, the volume also examines friendship, politics, death, and the machinations of the modern business world. The mountains and lakes of the central South Island have a strong presence in the imagery, while wry observations of people in that landscape move the collection far beyond the confines of simple landscape poetry.
