About the Book
Award-winning poet and a distinguished actor Peter Bland was born in Yorkshire and emigrated to New Zealand in 1954. 

In this new collection he continues ‘to give the world back to itself’ with insight, energy and tact.

The Times Literary Supplement describes his poetry as ‘vivid, witty, and original’ — accessible and colloquial, this is the perfect introduction to poetry.

From a recent review in the Listener:
Are these an old man’s poems? The answer is ... obvious. If you judge by content and themes then, yes, of course, they’re an old man’s poems. How could they be anything else? But if you judge by pithiness of expression, sharpness of observation and keenness of wit, there’s no hardening of the arteries. These poems are bright as polished glass.
