AbstractHistoryArchive Description

M. A. Carter's poems don't mind being rude, or chauvinistic, even a bit scary. He admits this will not make him popular or admired, but he doesn't care to be popular or admired, he prefers to say what he thinks and be done with it. Australian poet Philip Salom is the ghostwriter of these poems (Libraries Australia).

Notes
