Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Wonky Optics is Geoff Cochrane's fifteenth collection of poems. 'The Cochrane tone is one of the great pleasures in our literature--and somehow sweeter for appearing not to be part of that literature.' --Damien Wilkins 'Over the years, Cochrane's work has been a joy to me, a solace, a proof that art can be made in New Zealand which shows us ourselves in new ways.' --Pip Adam
