    'Days of Wine and Rage explores the tempo and shifts in mores and style of a dynamic decade - the 70s - in Australia’s cultural development. Deftly interweaving literature and documentary history, Frank Moorhouse traces, from their avant-garde origins, significant threads in Australia’s social fabric - the sub-cultural movements towards sexual liberation, cultural identity and a new creative and intellectual confidence. The multi-faceted examination evokes a lively impression of the ambience in which these social changes were generated and of the characters who got them going.Frank Moorhouse was hailed as ‘the widest-read chronicler of the new intelligentsia and their uncertainties’. Nowhere are his skills in literary and editorial craftsmanship and his acuity as observer of social nuance more evident than in this book.This the first title in the newly packaged Moorhouse Collection.'

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. 89
