Brian Turner is a poet, a freelance journalist, an editor, and a writer. He is the author of Just This, Ladders of Rain, Somebodies and Nobodies, and Taking Off.
"As always, Turner leads with his chin. Full of tenderness and a sense of melancholy, his poems look backwards and observe things that are happening right now, too. . . . Pure and simple. Turner makes poetry seem quite effortless." -Otago Daily Times on Just This
