Winner of the Scott Prize

From medieval Europe to outback Queensland, from war-torn Bosnia to China and on to the shores of the Aral Sea, The Source of the Sound traces the journeys of exiles in search of home.

In subtle, understated prose Patrick Holland charts a world of belonging and loss, lingering in its silence to capture the light that penetrates its deepest shadows. Sparse yet evocative, intimate yet powerful, these stories will resonate with readers long after they are finished.

The Norseman’s Song is a stylish blend of gothic mystery and modern crime noir. Evoking the spirit of Joseph Conrad and Edgar Allan Poe, Joel Deane creates a violent and lyrical vision of contemporary Australia with the pace and energy of a road movie and the haunting atmosphere of a nightmare.

    • Contemporary Australian Feminist Poetry

      Australia has a rich history of feminist poetry but there is no one kind of feminist voice.

      Each of the seventy new poems commissioned for this anthology cuts its own path through language. Together, their politics are restless, inextricably tied to the now.

    • Content

      ‘Content lampoons and laments the narcissism that accompanies the supposed information age … Ferney’s poems gun their way through a globalised economy with acronyms, diminutives, and inventive linguistic flares.’Gig Ryan


    • Devious Intimacy

      ‘This is arrestingly incarnated poetry diffused with female luminosity.’— Pam Brown

    • Eurydice Speaks

      Eurydice Speaks is a linked sonnet series echoing voices that emerge from the Underworld. This collection illustrates the evocative, associative and allusive power in the methods of poetry: to know and be known, to feel and be felt, to gather and cohere.
