Walking to Point Clear

DAVID BROOKS
David Brooks’ long-awaited second collection gathers together some of his best work from the last two decades. It features in particular, the kind of spare, existential lyrics, written about the coastal rainforest of southern NSW, that for many readers have already confirmed for him a unique place in the landscape of Australian poetry.

‘A great elegiac gift.’
- Bruce Beaver

‘Such ease. Such a sense of the world full of echoing life, such poignant lucency and “wise passivity”... With the madness going on around us, their poise and refusal to posture fills me with joy.’
- Veronica Brady
