THE MUSIC OUR BODIES CAN'T HOLD
The Music Our Bodies Can’t Hold’s premise is unique: 54 poems for the 54 chromosomes in the human body. Each poem is distinctive in typography and voice, gleaned from a primary source interview of a public or private figure believed to have Marfan syndrome.
YEAR OF THE WASP
As a literary work in and of itself, Year of the Wasp reads as a volume of rare, terrifying beauty; beguiling as it guides the reader through an ordinary series of events in an ordinary series of settings. Reading Joel Deane’s third volume of poetry with the biographical insight that the author recently suffered a stroke provides additional complexity, and a kind of lucidity.
Linda Weste’s Nothing Sacred provides an eclectic, erotic and sometimes profane insight into the private and public lives of Republican Rome. The combination of historicity with sensory poetics provides an immersive, visceral reading experience. And there is immediacy about the submersion in place – the reader is there from the first line, walking through the ‘peat bog haze’ and ‘streamers of blood’ of the eternal city.
THE SUNSET CLUB
The Sunset Club: a revenge tragedy in verse
Cover by Cameron Potts
Desire. Double lives. Deep Cover.
It’s an immediately volatile pairing when Vince ‘The Black Prince’ G meets Suze at the superbly seedy Sunset Club.
Will Suze shatter Vince’s family life and topple his empire? And is Suze even more lethal than she seems?
Set in the dirty, cutthroat world of Carlton’s 90’s underbelly, The Sunset Club is an uncensored story of a self invented anti-hero meeting his match, cops versus crooks, double identities and deep cover – told amidst a fog of smoke, coke and sex.
Based on true crime. Channeled by ghosts.
A fourth print run is expected in 2019
