A sure-footed collection that won the Arts Queensland Thomas Shapcott Poetry Prize in 2006, these poems are invigorated by compelling investigations of memory and politics. Sharing an emphasis on science and other realms of knowledge that poetry often avoids, individual poems take a variety of forms but offer intimate and lucid reflections on family life, nature, art, technology, and the imagination.
