A collection of Les Murray’s thoughts in prose, loosely focused on Australia and Australians. Also includes two of his best-loved poems on these subjects, ‘The Dream of Wearing Shorts Forever’ and ‘The Quality of Sprawl’. A wonderful and quietly inspiring, or at least consoling, compendium.
Les Murray is Australia’s great poet. Duffy & Snellgrove was proud to publish his work for a decade. We also publish his A Working Forest.
