With insight and insider knowledge, poet Geoff Page emphasises the contribution made by the notable generation of Australian poets who emerged during and just after World War II. It includes several contemporary poems which are likely to become classics in the near future. Each poem is followed by a short, lively essay discussing its merits and suggesting why it might be considered a classic.'

This anthology's range extends from the foot of the Blue Mountains through the suburban heartlands to the harbour and the beach, incorporating numerous - and often conflicting - interpretations and images of the city. This is the first collection of Sydney-specific poems for twenty years. It includes such classics as Slessor's "Five Bells" and favourites like "Clancy of the Overflow" as well as a generous selection of very contemporary work and older verse tracing back to the town's verse.' (Publisher's blurb) Glebe : Puncher and Wattmann , 2009 pg. 108-109

— Appears in: Transnational Literature , May vol. 2 no. 2 2010;
'It is the landscape, ultimately, that witnesses the leaving of home, and it is the memory of such landscape that makes us ache when recalling home. Geography owns us, but we too often deceive it. If we believe that we come from ‘country’, is leaving a denial, a betrayal? Is it possible that the costs of such infidelity might be higher for women?' -- from the first paragraph of the article.
