A Man Runs into a Woman Who Runs into a Review

A Man Runs into a Woman is the first book of poems by Sarah Barnett and the first publication off the shelf of Hue and Cry Press. I have known both Sarah and Chloe (editor-in-chief at Hue and Cry) for a few years and was thrilled to hear some of the poems I've been reading in early draft form were to make themselves into the wider world.

Chloe used PledgeMe, a New Zealand crowd-sourcing website, to raise the funds for this book. It broke the PledgeMe record for reaching its target. 

Usually I write reviews on this blog or at Scoop Books, but seeing as this book was delivered into the world with the aid of social collaboration I thought I would try and kick off some kind of social-review. So please, if you have read this book or you are about to, add a review on goodreads.com. You can give it a star rating and even better, a few quick thoughts. 

I’m intending a follow-up post with some of the pithier comments collected together. So add your comments, the pithier the better.
