HOW TO BE DEAD IN A YEAR OF SNAKES
Winner of the Jessie Mackay Award for Best First Book of Poetry (2016).
Shortlisted for the 2016 Ockham New Zealand Book Awards (Poetry).
“The themes of the book are hefty, rich and sometimes imposing… But these themes are made alluring by being couched in layers of craftsmanship, formal experimentation and a kind of kaleidoscopic poetic play. The result is curious and original…” – Lynley Edmeades, Landfall 230
Chris’ second book will be published by Auckland University Press in March 2018.
