Selected Poems, Paperback / softback Book

Selected Poems Paperback / softback

Description

Gig Ryan's edgy, excoriating poetry takes the pulse of urban Australia, but her territory is as much the human rat-race and the hell of contemporary life as the particular lives she seizes upon with icy, ironic precision.

Her range of reference brings together heroes, heroines and put-upon mortals of both ancient and modern times: slaves and moneygrabbers, pretenders and worshippers of ephemera and effluvia, for whom 'I continue my existence as a negative role-model / bathing in the blood of others / sitting in a cone of noise.'
