CJ Talbot has written a startling, imagery-rich, finely filagreed and linguistically complex ode to her hometown, her landscape and her people. Echoes of Gerard Manley Hopkins deliver the reader stories that are gentle, nostalgic, poignant, powerful and celebratory. A unique poetic voice has arrived on the Australian literary scene, one so closely linked to Place that the sounds, textures, scents and rhythms of rural life permeate off the page and move the senses as well as the heart.
