About the Book
"This, then, is not the banal lyric-play which afflicts all too many of the effete bloodless wordsmiths of Aotearoa-New Zealand." 
— Vaughan Rapatahana, Landfall Review Online.

'In this compelling first collection, Reihana Robinson offers a nuanced re-imagining of the Maori Rona legend through lyrical poems of love, transgression and sorrow that flesh out and challenge the archetypal notion of the woman in the moon.'
— Janelle Elyse Kihlstrom, editor of Melusine, or Woman in the 21st Century, an online journal of literature and art.

 “I love the mythic, edgy vision of Reihana’s poems...” 
— Joy Harjo, acclaimed Native American poet, musician & author
