In Stasis Shuffle Pam Brown continues to write a poetry that maps the edges of thought, to think ‘what cannot / be thought’. This collection plays with style and turns its attention to both personal friendships and formal experimentation. The poems are fragmentary and discursive, knowing and wry; bursting with jokes, wordplay, strange observation and striking thoughts that unfold with the sudden joy of discovery. This is a significant new collection by one of Australia’s most influential contemporary poets.
Pam Brown was born in Seymour, Victoria, grew up on military bases in Queensland, and has spent most of her adult life living and working in Sydney. She has published many books of poetry and prose and was contributing editor for Overland, Jacket, and many other magazines. Her books have won or been shortlisted for major literary awards including the Kenneth Slessor Prize for Poetry, The Age Book Of The Year Award, the Adelaide Festival Award for Poetry, the Judith Wright Calanthe Award, and the ALS Gold Medal.
