Sonja Yelich

Sonja Yelich lives in Auckland with her partner and their four children. Her latest book is Get Some (Auckland University Press, 2008), which includes this poem and “Foxholes—Nooses” (Best New Zealand Poems 2005).

Yelich comments: ‘Whilst the poem “Less” focuses for the most part on an accident, it is more about returning from conflict with less—and not necessarily in the physical sense.’
