The fifth book in the Braziller Series of Australian Poets features a poet whose work has been instrumental to the evolution of Australian poetry. By turns philosophical, comic, elegiac and witty, Wallace-Crabbe has forged an utterly unique voice in contemporary poetry. His delight in language is sheer pleasure for the reader, and his wry wisdom indispensable. The Sunday Times called his work "poetry of fine technical resource, precise observation, and sly wit." Wallace-Crabbe is one of Australia's most celebrated poets.
