Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

In recent years Godwit has established a strong market for handsomely packaged poetry and anthologies and Moonlight is no exception. Beautifully packaged in flexibind and with a marker ribbon, this intelligent, moving collection taps into the extraordinarily powerful way New Zealand poets address the subject of death, dying and grief. There are 65 poems from poets as diverse as Janet Frame and Glen Colquhoun, James K Baxter and Michael Jackson, drawn together by one of this country's finest mid-career poets, Andrew Johnston. All royalties go to Hospice New Zealand and the book is being launched on Montana Poetry Day 2008 at the Mary Potter Hospice, Wellington. This charitable connection was the editor's plan, as a mark of gratitude for the quality of care given to his late father by hospice several years ago.
