AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Press Release is Lisa Gorton's first book of poems. At its centre is a sequence set in the Mallee district of Victoria in the last years of World War II. Using elegies, dramatic monologues, portrait poems and lyrics, it explores the experience of first settlement in a meditation on ambition, patience and waste. Other poems are set in cities and in the future.' (Publisher's blurb)
