2015 shortlisted Peter Porter Poetry Prize
Fire Season 2006 selected work poetry The poems in Fire Season are illuminated by the intensity of everyday experience, dwelling in situations of want or absence, or radiant in the aura of those legendary beings, the heroines and monsters of film and story and myth, around whom the drama of life is concentrated. Alert to the forces which inhabit relationships, or exhaust them, and to the ways in which the moment is transformed by impending or departed consequence, the collection seeks to convey, as its title suggests, something of the vitality and the threat of fire, 'Something about heroism / and the weight of stone. Something about ash.' -- From the publisher's website
