    A Place To Return To is a rich and rewarding experience. The tone is elegiac and erudite, an erudition worn lightly and leavened by flashes of self-deprecating wit. `Attentive to the words between our words, the poems reach for the ineffable, the transcendent, seeking things of the spirit in the minutiae of closely observed landscapes--hills, sea, rocks--and they range widely across New Zealand, Europe, the Middle East and beyond. Memory and the present coexist in these poems in a wistful fusion and always, turning away from darkness, they tell us `what it means to walk inside the light'. --James Norcliffe

    `Poetry, as some sort of explanation, or in lieu of any explanation; or perhaps, an attempt at saying the essentially unsayable . . . this seems to be my poetic project.' --John Allison
