Author: Claire Gaskin
RRP: 19.95 (inc. GST)
Pub. Date: Nov 2013

‘Gaskin blends plain diction with perverse metaphor and fateful enjambment: images accumulate then thin out, like a tide. One line can be as heartbreaking as a dream; the next will undermine the language of hypocrisy, violence, or moralism.’ — Bonny Cassidy

TheMundiad

Author: Justin Clemens
RRP: 29.95 (inc. GST)
Pub. Date: September 2013

‘A fabulously irreverent rant … Scholarly without being ponderous, beautifully elegiac about popular culture and witty to boot.’ — Pam Brown, Notes on Recent Australian Poetry

‘The Mundiad is an antidote to the poetry of sensibility. It’s a roiling, bilious reminder of how good poetry can be when its propelled by an angry dismay at the world’s myriad inadequacies … a good old-fashioned table thumping, sternum prodding, bouncer baiting rant.’ — Dr Chris McAuliffe

‘Unique, subtle, exuberant and smart, Fiona Hile’s poetry is transformative, a sudden arrest in all the imagination can bear.’ — Peter Minter
