‘It is rare and electrifying to read poetry with this much at stake. This is Joel Deane’s masterwork. Wild, bitter, rapturous, it is his ‘Howl' and ‘Book of Revelations'. Magnificent!‘ — Lisa Gorton
From deeply personal origins, Deane’s third poetry collection rises to confront the realities of politics and culture, language and love in contemporary Australia. It is a journey of poetic transfiguration that produces a work of unrivalled power, emotional intensity, and insight.
