    y separately published work icon Four Quarters : A Collection of Poems Tom Petsinis , North Melbourne : Thompson Walker , 2006 Z1260730 2006 selected work poetry 'Tom Petsinis uses footy to write about life, and life to write about footy. His poems ring true. Like Jim Pavlidis' powerfully melancholic artwork, they capture the triumph of everyday hope in the face of everyday loss; that those who seek community - family, street, suburb, footy club - can never be defeated.' John Harms. (Back cover) North Melbourne : Thompson Walker , 2006 pg. 5

    y separately published work icon Southern Sun, Aegean Light : Poetry of Second-Generation Greek-Australians Nick Trakakis (editor), North Melbourne : Arcadia , 2011 Z1855714 2011 anthology poetry 'Southern Sun, Aegean Light represents the very first attempt to collect in a single volume the poetry of second-generation Greek-Australians. Bringing together the distinct and diverse work of over thirty poets, from the well established to the newly published, this collection showcases the poetic contribution of a generation that has arisen out of the shadows of its migrant past as it establishes a voice and sensibility of its own. The poetry presented here challenges stereotypes of what it is to be Greek-Australian, while also grappling with a variety of issues beyond identity and belonging, including death and dying, and memory and loss. These are poems to be savoured by earlier and later generations of Greek-Australians, as well as the wider community in Australia.' (Publisher's blurb)
