Author(s): Paula Green
Philosophers, scientists and artists such as Socrates, Simone de Beauvoir, Albert Einstein and Jane Austen pop in for lunch, stay for the afternoon, dance at outdoor concerts and generally inhabit the every-day in these playful and thought-provoking poems by much-admired poet Paula Green. The cover features a new painting by artist Michael Hight.
As well as her highly regarded poetry for adults, Green is the co-author of 99 Ways into New Zealand Poetry (Random, 2010) with Harry Ricketts, which was short-listed for the 2011 New Zealand Post Book Awards, and edited the best-selling anthology Dear Heart: 150 New Zealand Love Poems (Random, 2012). She has also published several books for children, including two collections of poetry, and is currently compiling an anthology of New Zealand poetry for children.
