Samuel Johnson in Marrickville

Dennis Haskell

Samuel Johnson in Marrickville

Dennis Haskell's first UK publication is a selection of poems from three full-length collections published in Australia. 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.

Les Murray, TLS

Painting the Bamboo Tree

Gail Dendy

Painting the Bamboo Tree

In her mesmerising first collection, Gail Dendy unleashes a panoply of sound, smells, colours, rhythms from her native South Africa in a sequence of poems which, though dealing with the familiar, the intimate and the every-day, have a haunting strangeness.

...her poems have a delicate beauty. Her strength is her finesse and throughout her book the haunting understatement is a delight.
