An Absence of Saints

Rosanna Licari

Publisher:University of Queensland Press

Winner of the 2009 Thomas Shapcott Poetry Prize At the heart of this exciting debut collection is the impulse to explore: family history in Europe, migration to Australia, the contours of memory and desire. Exquisite lyrics and deft narrative illuminate history's mosaics and brilliant shards of lost time. 'A poetry of evocation of time, distance and intimacy where actions are refracted through objects and emotions coalesce in the lacunae of the commonplace.' Louis Armand 'Licari has a magical ability to respond to and then express the essential strangeness, not only of objects and places but of our experience of life itself.' Martin Duwell
