A Man Runs into a Woman is a poetry collection by Sarah Jane Barnett.

It will be published by Hue & Cry Press.

The poems in Barnett’s debut collection are confronting, funny, and curious. The collection looks at the different ways we tell a person’s story. It is a book full of voices: two middle-aged men strike up an unlikely friendship; one couple reconnects after the war, while another couple leave the worst unsaid; a cross-dressing man talks with his daughter. In an unsettling sequence, nine poems explore the gap between the heartfelt last words of Texas death row inmates, and the grim police reports of their crimes. Barnett’s poems dig into the sometimes flimsy relationship between story and event, and the way we use language to create our world. This is a book of illness, violence, and love; disconnection, transition and reconciliation.

Over the past ten years Sarah Jane Barnett’s work has appeared in a wide range of publications. These include LandfallSportNZ Listener, and Southerly (Australia). Two of her poems were also selected for Best New Zealand Poems in 2007 and 2010. She has a Masters in Creative Writing from the International Institute of Modern letters, and is currently completing a creative writing PhD after being awarded a Massey Doctoral Scholarship.

Hue & Cry Press is a Wellington based publishing group, born as an extension of the New Zealand art and literary print publication, Hue & Cry JournalA Man Runs into a Woman will be the first book published by Hue & Cry Press. The book will be published using the same editorial team that brought you the most recent issues of Hue & Cry Journal: Chloe Lane, Lawrence Patchett, and Amy Brown. The Wellington-based design group, The International Office (www.the-international-office.com), will design and typeset the book, and the cover illustration has been commissioned by Wellington illustrator, Chris Simpson (aka Witch Ghetto).

The final phase of editorial work on A Man Runs into a Woman has begun, with the manuscript entering the last stages of the editing process, before we send it to our designers. We are hoping to release the book in early July 2012. However, we need your support to help cover printing costs for the book. So we can get it out into the wide world!
