How are we to survive our own lives? Therese Lloyd’s poems create a lyrical pathway through the thorny and singular questions of our time. And there, among so much that can be underestimated or go unnoticed, she finds alternative strength and beauty in things.
Other Animals is the powerful and provocative first book from one of New Zealand’s most exciting new poets.
Therese Lloyd’s poems have appeared in a number of print and online publications including Sport, Landfall, Hue & Cry, the AUP series New New Zealand Poets in Performance, Jacket2 and Turbine. In 2007 she was awarded the Schaeffer Fellowship to spend a year attending the acclaimed Iowa Writer’s Workshop. Several cities later, she now lives in Paekakariki with her husband.
'Other Animals is a layered and nuanced collection that repays reading and re-reading.' Landfall Review Online
