Author(s): Hone Tuwhare

NZ Poetry

Presents diverse new poems alongside earlier unpublished work. It is a wild, unpredicatable expression of exuberance for words, love, and social justice. The poems are about the act of writing; about Hone's beloved Shirley Grace; about his hunger for the bounty of Tangaroa, music and sex. They reflect with humour and raw candour the challenges of ageing while having an unquenchable lust for life. Hone Tuwhare has won two Montana NZ Book Awards, has been Te Mata Poet Laureate, and held two honorary doctorates in literature. At 82, he wrote as passionately as ever to the last.
