An exciting new collection from one of Australia’s most daring poets, this book exudes confidence and grace and moves effortlessly from wit to whimsy. Intellectually invigorating, these poems beautifully evoke the possibilities of a joyful life. Weighing the consequences of history and meditating on living well, the darker and more sardonic works in this compilation also focus on mortality and consolation and insist upon the absurdity of human destructiveness and warfare. With dedications and responses to other poets, this anthology creates a rich sense of poetry as part of a larger dialogue between poets.

M. T. C. Cronin is a contemporary Australian poet and the author of several collections, including How Does a Man Who Is Dead Reinvent His Body?, Squeezing Desire Through a Sieve, and The Ridiculous Shape of Longing.
