Paperback, 140 x 210mm
Wonky Optics is Geoff Cochrane’s fifteenth collection of poems.
‘The Cochrane tone is one of the great pleasures in our literature—and somehow sweeter for appearing not to be part of that literature.’
‘Over the years, Cochrane’s work has been a joy to me, a solace, a proof that art can be made in New Zealand which shows us ourselves in new ways.’
Geoff Cochrane is the author of sixteen collections of poetry, two novels, and Astonished Dice: Collected Short Stories (2014). In 2009 he was awarded the Janet Frame Prize for Poetry, and in 2010 the inaugural Nigel Cox Unity Books Award. Geoff received an Arts Foundation of New Zealand Laureate Award in 2014.
