Book synopsis: In this slim debut, Liane Strauss offers poems of great ingenuity, humour and charm. This feminine metaphysical verse frequently explores aspects of desire, and holds at its heart a number of seeming contradictions: it is often ironic yet romantic, passionate yet deftly controlled, intellectual yet accessible, and displays wit counterbalanced with modesty. These qualities, coupled with her considerable formal skill and wonderful, imaginative sleight of hand, should win her a wide, and wide-eyed, audience.
