The Ski Flier
8 JUNE 2017
This is the miracle, to walk as if alive
As it traverses various landscapes, The Ski Flier also moves through a world where strength and self doubt exist in the same moment. Maria McMillan’s vivid second full poetry collection takes in mountains and cities, dragons and daughters, hope and wish fulfilment, demolition and renewal. With shining intelligence these poems demand that we pay attention to where we have been and where we are now.
Maria McMillan is of Scottish, English and Southland ancestry. She grew up in Christchurch and now lives on the Kapiti Coast. Her poems have been published widely in New Zealand and overseas. The Ski Flier is her second full collection.
