AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Pirate Rain builds on the highly acclaimed George Jefferies poems, exploring themes of power, violence, politics and love across Paris, Baghdad, New York and the waters of the Gulf.

The poems discuss the US Presidential campaign, the War on Terror, economic crises and celebrity meltdowns on the one hand, and intensely personal themes of anger, privacy, family, art and love on the other, bringing each into sharp and often biting relief against the other.

Pirate Rain is a vigorous, rich and witty collection, from one of the most individual voices of contemporary Australian poetry.' (From the publisher's website.)
