Abstract:

"Dinah Hawken's new book is an extension of her previous work. At its heart is a collection of superb new poems. To them, Dinah Hawken has added two prose journals: the first covering the months immediately after 9/11 when she remained in Wellington while her husband travelled to work at the UN in New York; the second when they were together in Geneva in early 2002 as the US response took shape. One Shapely Thing draws together in new ways Dinah Hawken's characteristic themes of personal responsibility and social justice, and of living in and with the natural world."--Jacket.
