Other Animals is the powerful and provocative first book from one of New Zealand’s most exciting poets.
‘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.’ —Bernadette Hall
‘Other Animals is a layered and nuanced collection that repays reading and rereading.’ —Landfall Review Online
