  • Fay Zwicky s The Witnesses 2010 Caroline Caddy s The Tibetan Cabinet 2010 and mine 2008 I made the cut because I was at the same Perth Writer s Festival where Dennis Haskell launched the other two CDs the other two writers are West Australians Thanks Julie for noticing what you call my effortless music making and my existential musing His voice is a river Watts writes on which his poems float and flash And the February issue No 43 of the plucky Tasmanian literary journal Famous Reporter includes a review of Fire Diary by Canadian poet Laurie Brinklow http walleahpress com au Perhaps I could quote a paragraph of it Whereas The Blue Plateau is a gorgeous elegy to the Blue Mountains in New South Wales where the author lived with his family for seven years and incidentally is one of the best books I ve read in a very long time and SHOULD have won the Prime Minister s Award if you ask me Fire Diary is a more personal journey of a man and his family of nature and the seasons And if The Blue Plateau is filled with language that brings me to my knees unconscious
