This selection of thirty-four of McQueen's best-loved poems brings together work from twenty years of performance and publication. Cilla McQueen's readings of her work are unforgettable. In this recording, her readings are accompanied by three Dunedin musicians. Many of the poems on this CD are from a time when Cilla was the partner of leading New Zealand artist Ralph Hotere; echoes bounce between the works of the two. A must for all poetry and art lovers.
