‘Each and every day, at some point on our walk, he stops and lets me know that this is today’s person, the party he wants to be introduced to.’
Chosen is the nineteenth collection of poems by cult Wellington poet and pedestrian Geoff Cochrane.
‘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 ourselves in new ways.' —Pip Adam
