And Ms Bird is perched on the cover like a...bird. If the cover is somewhat enigmatic, the poetry isn't. Hard hitting,honest, sometimes funny and sometimes shocking my daughter (who played with Hera when they were both very tiny children) describes this as poetry that speaks to millennials. I am w...

One of the better books of poems I've read in a while - there's hype threatening to crush this and angry backlash telling others it can't at all be good but most of this is very, very good, and even in its weakest moments its intriguing. The best thing this does is urge you to read it over and ag...

Well, it has taken an age, but I'm done. I didn't love this book, but I did think it was a deeply intimate, quirky and very personal book of poems. I know she is considered the bright young thing of New Zealand poetry right now, and I did really enjoy some of these immensely, but some of them wer...

This is one of my favourite books of poetry of all time. I don't say that lightly, and this isn't the first book of poetry I've read either, in case you are wondering. :) It is twisting, funny, raw and oh, so clever. I understand why it is getting all the attention in New Zealand (and I hope elsewh...

I will definitely need to take another pass at her work because it is so packed with metaphors either that they initially have nothing to do with the subject and that you're going absolutely crazy - which, to be honest, I think is the intention. I really enjoyed 'Having Already Walked Out On Every...

I read this in a five star hotel between crisp white sheets and it was glorious. That was in July and it's stayed with me until December. A great work that at times felt unbearably painful. I know Hera and I felt like I'd stumbled into reading her emails yet couldn't look away. Rich, smart and so...

Sharp and brilliant, measured and careless, and absolutely a joy to read.

Hera Lindsay Bird by Hera Lindsay Bird will provoke a reaction. Whether that be erupting into laughter at ridiculous smilies or transforming into an old man yelling at the clouds. The author is quite clearly wearing a mask in this collection. It's a mask I want to put on as a reader. This review o...

Hera is one of those poets who remind you of a magician who stands on stage and explains exactly what they're doing, explains slight of hand, perception and showmanship. Despite all this transparency you're still left thinking "witchcraft! Where did these powers come from!?" after the performance...
