Review of This Change in the Light: a collection of poems – Fiona Kidman

Posted: December 26, 2016 in poetry, Review


A companion volume to the best-selling Where your left hand rests, this is a personal, autobiographical collection of poems from one of NZ’s top writers.

These well-crafted poems are rich in descriptiveness and invite the reader into Fiona Kidman’s life, sharing family, friends, and places she loves with the sonnet sequence being illustrated with family photos of the poet’s mother.  They touch our own experiences, giving relevance and insight to our memories.

The very attractive little book has a golden mosaic dust jacket and an attached red ribbon to mark your place.  It has stunning artwork and is a pleasure to read.
