'Have you heard of the verse novel? It's a novel written in verse or poetry rather than prose. One person who made her name with the verse novel was the late Australian poet Dorothy Porter. Her genre bending books The Monkey's Mask and El Dorado are two good examples. Now poet Kristin Henry has added her own voice to this tradition with her novel in poems All the Way Home. It's about American Jesse Bryant's search for a home, first in the United States then in a commune on the south coast of New South Wales. It begins in the 1950s, takes us through the hippie days of the 70s and into the present.'
