SERAPH PRESS, DECEMBER 2014
A limited edition, hand-bound, 20-page chapbook of poems about real and fictional women of New Zealand history, including the country's first and only female lighthouse keeper Mary Jane Bennett, writers Blanche Baughan and Katherine Mansfield, a whaler's daughter, and a ghost.
"My favourite kind of poem is the sort with last lines that land in your throat and stay there for days. Poems where the resolution and the climax happens in two beats that leave you slightly dazed. That’s what Nina Powles' work does."
