What they are saying about home{sic}

With the launch of home{sic} set to go off tonight, I thought I would give you a sneak peek at what people have been saying about the collection. Here’s a few choice words from Matt Hetherington:

Beveridge doesn’t muck around too much.  From Kings Bridge in Launceston to Dundarave Pier in Vancouver, via Mount Gravatt, she’s at home with not being at home.  Here, you get her usual sharp, dark wit, but also a new and heartening sense of the hard-won riches of the spirit.  There’s a gratifying variety of styles, too, from understated prose poems on lust, pregnancy and love, to haiku/senryu, to lyrical recollections of sundry 20th century tomfoolery, which take in various cultural points of departure and arrival, from Yevgeny Yevtushenko to Burt Bacharach.  Read her book today, cover to cover.

*****

See you at Riverbend Books tonight for the launch. Doors are at 6pm!

    All the best Julie for a fun and audience-packed evening.
