    4.5/5* This may have risen to first place in terms of poetry collections I read this year. Even though this is a short book, it is so full of great pieces that you just want to savour. Each piece is so perfectly constructed with it's own narrative, and everyday moments are capture so clearly in Cate Kennedy's Words.This was just a book picked up at a second hand store and I'm so glad I came across it because it's beautiful, and I'll definitely be seeking out Kennedy's other writing. Favourite pi [...]

    Everyday moments rendered with such care and subtlety; and so sad; so very, very sad.

    If you are a fan of Kennedy’s short fiction then I suspect that you will enjoy her poetry in The Taste of River Water. The collection presents poetry with a strong narrative structure and focus i.e. these poems tell stories, the diction and register is fairly plain/natural in its delivery.TaprootI must plant the tree seedlinga friend left here on the stepfind a place for the cards.It seems important somehowa matter of fumbling prideto fold all this paper square for recyclingthe florist wrap fr [...]

    “The Taste of River Water” : This beautiful little book had me in tears before Sydney on the flight home. (Yes, I know, I'm so tough). And that was just a brief sketch of a farming family at a photo competition and before the extended blow of the final two sections. Simple and straightforward language which was something of a relief after some of the writing I had been exposed to recently.Cate being the only writer at the(Bellingen Readers & Writers) Festival who gets a photo on my Faceb [...]

    I was given this book for Christmas, and I'm glad I was because I tend not to buy books of poetry, and this book is really full of incredible poems. There is a lot of poems about small, insignificant but beautiful moments, but there others dedicated to historical moments and the deeply personal.If I keep on writing this review, I'm going to end up rambling, but I think these three words (from this blurb from the Victorian Premier's Literary Awards website sum it up completely: disarming, warm an [...]

    I don't read a lot of poetry, possibly a hangover from high school English classes in the 70's. But I do like good poetry and this slim volume is full of good poetry. Kennedy generously shares some very personal thoughts and emotions as well as drawing the readers attention to small common imperfect beauty, things often overlooked; what Japanese call 'wabi sabi'. Her poetry is almost conversational, but beautifully laid out like an elegant yet simple dinner table. Much to enjoy and to reread her [...]

    Beautiful poetry. Again this was a poet I introduced to my writing group the other week when I read one of the poems from this collection. Those listening adored it. You can read more about this book on my Write and Read with Dale blog for September 29 2011 orangedalevejournal/?sk

    Beautiful evocative poetry. The second half of the book so painfully leads the reader through the devastation of losing a child. In the first half, I was led to new places as though I lived next door all this time and was finally being invited inside. What I found there was what I expected but nothing like I imagined. In "Picasso's portrait of a young woman" a young girl experiences a great artist, by chance and for the first time, when rain drives her family inside a a gallery. As her father pr [...]

    I stumbled upon this publication (in eBook format) by accident and what a find it was! A magnificent collection of poems in an elegantly designed format. Earthy, authentic and emotional but elegantly restrained. The "blurb" is absolutely spot on in emphasising the way the poems "begin on the surface and then take us, gracefully and effortlessly, to a far more thought-provoking place" and in asserting that poems "resonate with a passionate, sensuous honesty".

    I came across this book while I was shelf-reading at work. These are beautiful, fragile poems. Kennedy describes moods and small moments, beautiful in themselves, but then with a line the poem shifts and you realise she is talking about something even more profound, human and connected. This is my first experience of Kennedy's work and I'm very excited about this writer.
