    y Autoethnographic Michael Brennan , Artarmon : Giramondo Publishing , 2012 Z1901163 2012 selected work poetry Autoethnographic tunes into the feedback loops of liquid modernity and the strange loop of the self. With an anarchic openness to anxiety, dysfunction and the endless hunger for community, Brennan's third collection offers hallucinatory jumpcuts from a dystopic near-present inhabited by casino capitalists, bonobo cultists, free market geneticists, grifters, lurkers and lovers going about their business in the aftermath of the freedom agenda. Interrogating the surreality of perpetual growth and the violent ellipses of democratic capitalism, his short narratives are jagged canticles to the beautiful monsters of language, love, friendship and family; field notes from a protean and kaleidoscopic world governed by speed and recurrence, the flows of desire and the architecture of fear; a disorientating and relentless mix of elegy, anti-poetry and post human punk. [From the publisher] Artarmon : Giramondo Publishing , 2012 pg. 78-79

    'This anthology...is a negotiation of many spaces. That of poets and their work, the idea of "Australia", the idea of being "represented" in a different demographic (America), personal or textual issues with anthologiser, who else is being included (though none outside myself and the publishers have knowledge of this until publication). Vitally, whoat matters is the conversations that arise from the anthology going public, and how the poets and readers deal with this community that has been organically and artificially induced.'
