Jenny Bornholdt's 'The Rocky Shore (VUP) features in the Times Literary Supplement, London, 2012

BOOKS OF THE YEAR in the Times Literary Supplement, London, November 30, 2012.

The poet/translator Michael Hofmann writes: In The Rocky Shore (Victoria University Press), the New Zealander Jenny Bornholdt talks to herself in six long, sinuous, casual, loopy poems the way I don't think I've ever heard a poet talk before (James Schuyler and Louis MacNeice come closer): low pressure, revealed purpose and unexpected tenacity. Illness, children, the deaths of friends, malcontent plants and an errant garden shed shuffle past as on a benign ghost train.

Congratulations Jenny...
