WhirlingBook - 1998
Whirling is a new collection of poems by Chris Wallace-Crabbe, who is much-traveled, and read, and admired equally in America, Britain, and his home country, Australia. He was awarded the distinguished Melbourne Age Book of the Year Award in 1995. His versatile use of language, including vivid Australian slang, is energetic and attractive, sometimes almost distracting his readers from a deeper seriousness and sadness. Whirling offers readers a glimpse into the world of a profound, wide-ranging, and eloquent poet.
