“I’ve enjoyed Leonard Lambert’s poetry for many years. It’s strong, witty and close to the bone. He’s after his own truth, no faking in language or emotion.”Maurice Gee

This lone craftsman has over many decades carved out his own space (and sometime his own vocabulary) to bring us poems that sing the everyday and quietly explore the mysteries of time and tide.

“… full of oomph and texture.” — Otago Daily Times
“… free-diving into memory, the poet surfaces, nodding and winking.” — Landfall Online
