The Gas Leak
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungThis thoughtful, disturbing, and darkly funny new collection explores the theme of uneasy domestic life in poems arranged in three sequences and narrated by a gas fitter, his wife, and their teenage daughter. Without explicit storytelling, the secrets and peculiarities of each character are revealed in technically superb poetry that is deceptively easy to navigate.
PortraitAnna Jackson is a well-established poet whose three previous collections, all from AUP, attracted much admiration: The Long Road to Teatime, The Pastoral Kitchen, shortlisted for the Montana NZ Book Awards, and Catullus for Children.
