Description

Winding their way through places that are experiencing a change of purpose, these poems move with a unique, seductive language and an irresistible drive. Revelling in the articulation of transition, as awestruck by the possibilities of change as it is keenly aware of loss, this debut collection rejects the too-easy judgements of navigation guided solely by a moral compass. With influences as diverse as the poetry of Les Murray and the painting of Edward Hopper, Here Is My Street, This Tree I Planted bounces, both linguistically and culturally, from one end of the globe to the other—and back again.
