Two Kinds of Silence
Bold and musical, this collection of poetry invokes the splendor of the Tasmanian coastline and high country. From a poet known for her intense and alluring examinations of the Australian landscape, this new work also concentrates on the fire and reach of imagination, the poignancy of parenthood, and the overwhelming force of adult love.
