Product Description


It's dusk. The train glides out of the station and soon we're racing through flat snowy fields. The grey sky is streaked with primrose, I open CK Stead's The Yellow Buoy - and I'm hooked. Stead needs no introduction. He's one of our most prolific, versatile and internationally renowned writers.
- Sarah Quigley, The Listener, NZ

"Whether measured against Stead's ample poetic oeuvre or against the recent works of esteemed international poets, The Yellow Buoy is a profound, accessible and engaging collection."
- Siobhan Harvey, Dominion Post Weekend, NZ

"Siobhan Harvey, Dominion Post Weekend [...] Altogether, this is a book to read and reread for sheer entertainment blended with deep wisdom, humanity and poetic skill."
--Edmund Prestwich
