Praise for Bill Manhire's Collected Poems

Of course there is the wit, the linguistic juggling, the excellence of the ear which can turn a daggy Kiwi phrase to a new sophistication. And there are the bravua pieces, full of surprises and shifting emotional depth.
Bernadette Hall THE EVENING POST

Manhire has an exceptional feel for the tricks and turns of words, which makes for a collection that never fails to hold your interest.
