ShiftBook - 2011
Rhian Gallagher's second collection encompasses a departure from London, where she lived for eighteen years, and a return to the pines and paddocks of the South Island. This mid-life shift involves acts of retrieval, confrontations with loss and movements towards renewal: 'Belonging was always touch / touch and go.' At the heart of the book is an intimate testament to a relationship - sensual, direct, contradictory - celebrating the evolution of deep connection between two women. Meditative, at times urgent, this evocative collection will earn Rhian Gallagher a well-deserved place in the New Zealand poetic landscape.
