Closely-observed, lyrical, Romantic, humorous and above all fiercely honest, Haskell's poetry deals with the 'ordinary' - childhood, parenthood, love, sex, politics, friends, families, the sun-drenched landscape, the flash flood - in an extraordinary way. This is a powerful and memorable collection from one of Australia's most distinguished poets.

Astronaut

Brian Henry

Astronaut

Astronaut abounds with an unflagging energy, an exuberance of language and a humour that is by turns savage and deadpan, all of which leave the reader encountering Brian Henry's poems for the first time gasping for air. But so compelling is his cleverness with words and exploitation of the poetic form that the reader will be only too happy to take the plunge again. Already a rising star in his native US, Brian Henry will undoubtedly make his mark in the UK with this, his first published full-length collection.
