    A major work of lyrical complexity and ethical vision, a turning point for a maturing and daring imagination. The poems are alert, assured and readable, concentrating with sensual, empathic intelligence on extraordinarily everyday happenings. Australian poet. (Source: TROVE)

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.'
