AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Well-known composer and poet Ross Bolleter expands his creative territory with this striking new collection. Taking up the age-old themes of desire, love, death, creativity, and the passing of time, these are poems of celebration, intimacy and broad sympathy. Encompassing personal lyrics, meditations, narrative and a unique poem sequence ('Suite for Ruined Piano') where poet, composer and performer meet, Piano Hill brings the work of this engaging poet to a wider audience.' (Publisher's blurb)
