Ben Smith's first book of poetry is a visceral, moving, evocative ode to his youth, his friendships and the struggles and existential questions that dog us all. Heartfelt, yearning, and deeply philosophical, this book will become a classic - a new kind of Australian beat genre, echoing Michael Dransfield, and Americans like Ginsberg and Bukowski. Students have been fascinated and enthralled to read the voice of their teacher in poetry - raw, honest and powerful.
