Tim Thorne has been at the forefront of poetry in Australia since the 1960s.
This, his thirteenth collection, includes poems which illustrate his concerns with social and environmental issues, with history and with some of the absurdities of 21st century society.
Some of these pieces are set in Europe, which Thorne visits regularly, and some in Australia, but all belong firmly in the borderless republic of poetry.
His trademark wit is present as ever, and his tendency to approach subjects from unexpected angles gives a freshness and clarity to the perceptions which enliven the work.
Thorne’s is a distinctive and unforgettable voice.
