Somewhere in August
Somewhere in August (Steele Roberts - $29.99) is a careful selection from Leonard Lambert’s extensive body of work: A Washday Romance (1980), Park Island (1990), Natural Anthem (2004), Skywire: love poems (2008), A Morning Walk in the Later Days (2010) and Remnants (2013). A number of recent poems round out a substantial and rewarding collection.
“I’ve enjoyed Leonard Lambert’s poetry for many years. It’s strong, witty and close to the bone. He’s after his own truth, no faking in language or emotion.” — Maurice Gee
