Abstract Internal Furniture
by Helen Rickerby

Abstract Internal Furniture

The mythic and the everyday meet in this debut collection of poetry by upcoming Wellington writer Helen Rickerby. Orpheus busks in Cuba Mall, Death has a dinner date with Theodora and women find themselves trapped in fairy tales. In a playful way, she examines the themes of identity, self discovery, the construction of femininity, and relationships between friends and lovers. The poetry is complemented by 10 striking photocollages by Auckland artist Maggie Grant.
