Snowing Down South
This is a fifth collection of poems by a well-established poet. In Snowing Down South, Janet Charman recalls her childhood, full of voices and stories, and in writing preserves bits of New Zealand’s past as well as her own and her family’s. The poems range over an era in all its colour and detail and should strike chords with many readers.
More about Janet Charman
Charman’s work is gritty, intense, has a dark wit, a subtle cleverness, and . . . a scintillating grimness. – Emma Neale, NZ Books
