    'Dorothy Porter’s sixth poetry collection (1997–2001) travels the solar system for comets, distant moons and other heavenly bodies before returning to South America and the Northern Territory and finishing with a selection of commissioned works—including one for the 2000 Sydney Olympics and one for the collection Dick for a Day.

    'This collection sees a number of emerging themes and images that Dorothy Porter would further explore in later works such as her verse novel Wild Surmise—which was short-listed for the Miles Franklin Award in 2003 and won the Adelaide Festival Award in 2004. It is a wonderful collection illustrating a key era in the evolution of one of Australia’s most cherished poets.'

    'Dorothy Porter was one of Australia’s truly original writers, renowned for her passionate, offbeat poetry and verse novels. The Best 100 Poems of Dorothy Porter draws from her life’s work to present the many facets of Porter the poet, from stretching the fabric of ancient mythology to delving into the beauty of the natural world, or inking an intimate message on your heart. This elegant hardback, a companion volume to The Best 100 Poems of Les Murray, is the perfect gift for Porter fans and newcomers alike. (Publisher's blurb)
