    y Limited Cities Lachlan Brown , Artarmon : Giramondo Publishing , 2012 Z1899921 2012 selected work poetry 'Limited Cities is a collection of poems which searches for and finds grace in outlying and disadvantaged parts of the city that are often derided or ignored. The primary setting is Sydney's south-western suburbs, with their housing estates and shopping malls and highways, places featured in the media for crime, social tension and corruption. Elsewhere in the collection, these suburban scenes are set against their European counterparts, with rhapsodies on the Parisian banlieues during Advent and Lent, and list-poems set on the streets of Barcelona. Lachlan Brown's poetry draws a self-aware and precarious authenticity from these contested landscapes, using a variety of forms which allows his poems to be personal, political and revelatory by turns' (Publisher blurb).
