nz review for dark bright doors

Dark Bright Doors review in Otago Daily Times, New Zealand, by Hamesh Wyatt - cool (well, 9 degrees in Dunedin).

"In 1992, Australian poet Jill Jones released a stunning debut collection of poems The Mask and the Jagged Star (Hazard). [...] Her latest collection of poems, Dark Bright Doors, continues to explore the road less travelled. [...] Her poems can be violent. They are all haunted by the same brutal truths about love and hope and the wedges that age, distance and human frailty drive between them. Dark Bright Doors exudes wide-eyed angst and a sense of discovery that's hard to put across in prose."
