'This unique volume is a collaboration by, and a conversation between, two well-published Western Australian poets. It is loosely inspired by the Japanese renga, a traditional collaborative form, but in this incarnation it becomes more of an intuitive call and response between the two writers. It is an experimental work, somewhat elusive at times. Dennis Haskell has described it as “almost as if John Ashbery got drunk and rewrote Finnigans Wake”. A traditional reader of these strange and evocative prose poems may struggle to find meaning but there are wonderful gems and small stories to be found in this interesting collection.'
