In his new collection, Harry Ricketts finds room for three songs written in Hong Kong in 1975, and a 1979 poem about a War poet. Other poems remember departed friends and early experiences, and celebrate the abiding pleasure of reading, writing and cricket. Formally adroit, Just Then is by turns tender, funny and often surprising.

Harry Ricketts teaches English literature and creative writing at Victoria University of Wellington. He has published over twenty books including literary biographies and personal essays. Just Then is his ninth collection of poems.

Lines that lift and lever

These is refreshing collection of poems, whose phrases hold in balance the old colonial sensibilities and intentionally off-kilter mood, and the newer, New Zealand joviality, warmth and modesties that are so endearing.
