Product description

Review

Her scattered reach and lack of self-centredness are unusual and attractive. She writes about fire, flood, drought, refugees. She has not one but many poetic voices, an agility - no imaginative leap is too great to attempt. --Kate Kellaway, Observer, Poetry Book of the Month [on What Long Miles]

Totally addictive. What Long Miles by Kona Macphee is a revelation. Its vivid, powerful and, dare I say, perfect poems linger and grow in the mind like those dry flowers you put in water so they blossom afresh. --Regi Claire, Scotsman, Writers' Books of the Year 2013

Kona Macphee is a truly gifted poet and I always read her work with admiration. She is a profoundly serious writer whose skill and lightness of touch takes us to the very heart of the matter. I thoroughly recommend What Long Miles as one of the finest collections I have read for some time. --Ron Butlin, Sunday Herald, Books of the Year 2013

About the Author

Kona Macphee was born in London and grew up in Australia, where she worked as a waitress, shop assistant and apprentice motorbike mechanic. She studied musical composition at the Sydney Conservatorium, violin at the University of Sydney, and computer science and robotics at Monash University, later taking an M.Sc. at Cambridge as a Commonwealth Scholar. She received an Eric Gregory Award for her poetry in 1998, and has published two collections with Bloodaxe, Tails (2004); Perfect Blue (2010), winner of the Geoffrey Faber Memorial Prize in 2011; and What Long Miles (2013). She is a freelance writer and software developer, and lives in Crieff, Perthshire.
