One of the joys of working down my end of Dunedin is the proximity to the University Book Shop. During my lunch break yesterday I wandered along to catch up on the latest arrivals, and discovered Jan Hutchison’s poetry book, The Happiness of Rain. Jan’s wonderful poem, Another letter to Hone, appeared in the Spring 2011 edition of PitWR. The Happiness of Rain is another superb collection from Jan. With a price tag of $19.99 it’s about the same price as a movie ticket and a box of popcorn. Great value when you consider the smell of a book is superior to popcorn and unlike a movie, the book is yours forever!
