Product description


"Common Land is possibly the most successful mix of poetry and prose I have read. Nothing is simply occasional, and everything fits together . . . the essays and poems circle, and shine lights on one another. Lynn Davidson has produced a deeply feeling and deeply rational book, a thoughtful book, where things are unusual and surprising, and yet necessary and true." --Elizabeth Knox, author, The Vintner's Luck

"Common Land slinks into the room with poems that sound true. The short essays capture the intensity of feeling that owe a debt to her past. This book hangs together naturally leaving the reader free to enjoy the view as the ride progresses. This is another book full of energy and imagination." --Hamesh Wyatt, Otago Daily Times
