Green Shadows and other poems
Gerald Murnane, now in his eightieth year, began his writing career as a poet. After many years as a writer of fiction, he returned to poetry a few years ago when he moved to Goroke, in Victoria, after the death of his wife. The forty-five poems collected here speak openly to the reader of the author’s memories, beliefs and experiences, and are an important addition to his internationally recognised body of fiction.
Finally, in Felicity, we can immerse ourselves in Oliver's love poems. Here, great happiness abounds. Our most delicate chronicler of physical landscape, Oliver has described her work as loving the world. With Felicity she examines what it means to love another person. She opens our eyes again to the territory within our own hearts; to the wild and to the quiet. In these poems, she describes - with joy - the strangeness and wonder of human connection.
Light, as a physical and metaphorical entity recurs in many of the poems in this new collection by Tasmanian poet Sarah Day. Light makes its presence felt in these poems as a source of illumination and grace, it is also the means by which the flaws and discrepancies of the present and past are highlighted.

Grief is the Thing with Feathers
In a London flat, two young boys face the unbearable sadness of their mother's sudden death. Their father, a Ted Hughes scholar and scruffy romantic, imagines a future of well-meaning visitors and emptiness. In this moment of despair they are visited by Crow - antagonist, trickster, healer, babysitter. This sentimental bird is drawn to the grieving family and threatens to stay until they no longer need him.
