AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'‘These poems about friendship and belonging – I’ve had them with me for just two weeks and yet I feel as much at home with them as with friends I’ve known all my life. Meg Mooney has the language to speak of silences and centres – and of breathing and heartbeats, the odd fact that one keeps growing older – and of country and time and how to listen to them. Like your other wise and wry and gentle books Meg, this one’s permanent.’ – Peter Bishop

‘Honest, generous, wise and funny, Meg Mooney’s poems bring you straight into the gritty, idiosyncratic daily experience of life in central Australia.’ – Jansis O’Hanlon, Chief Executive Officer, Varuna, the National Writers’ House ' (Publication summary)
