News yesterday about the forthcoming memoir by poet Melissa Green has set up a thrum of excitement. For her Tuesday Poem, NZ novelist, poet, bibliophile and teacher of creative writing, Mary McCallum at O Audacious Book, has posted Czesław Miłosz's 'Song on the end of the World', which Melissa once shared on her blog (Mary recalling that it's almost two years since Christchurch was so badly shaken), and delights in news of The Linen Way.

Over at her much-loved blog, Marylinn Kelly (US writer and enquirer/philosopher, art and craft professional, maker of fabulous stamps) also enthuses over this publication, and shares Melissa's heartache of a poem, 'Daphne in Mourning'.
