AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The List of Last Remaining by Louise Nicholas is a collection full of depth and diversity, a narrative of fractures in time where people and places mirror each other and become windows into the human condition. She combines the craft of poetry with memoir, drawing the reader into intimate moments. From memories of childhood to historical events and reflections on aging, Nicholas weaves a tapestry of experience and meaning-making. There is a circularity to this narrative, which Nicholas begins ‘On the day our parents went out in the boat and didn’t come back’ (9) and ends with ‘the list of last remaining’ (85), and where many of the poems in-between contain fragments of the whole.' (Introduction)

    'Recently, in the Runaway Bay newsagency (north of Surfers Paradise), my eye was attracted by a sign on one of the shelves: it said ‘Women’s Interest’. Below it, six magazines – all of them to do with creative writing: The Writer (US), The Writer’s Chronicle (US), Writer’s Digest (US), Writers’ Forum (UK), Writing Magazine (UK) and Literary Review (UK). They cost me a total of $92.16 . ' (Nigel Krauth, Editorial introduction)
