9781780373010: Net Needle

Nourished for much of his life by Australia's Hawkesbury River, Adamson's poetry praises nature - red in tooth and claw - and celebrates existence as a mythological quest. Net Needle brings together the presiding influences of Adamson's life, early and late. He casts an affectionate eye on the Hawkesbury fishermen who `stitched their lives into my days', childhood escapades, lost literary comrades, and the light and tides of the river. Throughout, he is characteristically attuned to the natural world, sketching encounters both intimate and strange.

About the Author:

Robert Adamson was born in Sydney in 1943 and grew up in Neutral Bay and on the Hawkesbury River, New South Wales. From 1970 to 1985 he edited Australia's New Poetry magazine, and in 1988, with Juno Gemes, he established Paper Bark Press, one of Australia's leading poetry publishers. He is the inaugural CAL chair of poetry at UTS (University of Technology, Sydney). In 2011 he was awarded the Patrick White Prize and the Blake Prize for Poetry. His many award-winning publications include an autobiography, Inside Out (2004), two books of autobiographical fiction, and nearly 20 books of poetry, including Reading the River: Selected Poems (2004) and The Kingfisher's Soul (2009) from Bloodaxe. His latest collection, Net Needle, was published in the US by Flood Editions in 2014 and in Australia by Black Inc. in 2015, and is published by Bloodaxe in the UK in 2016.

Review:

'One of the finest Australian poets at work today.' - David Wheatley, Times Literary Supplement; '"Net Makers", at the end of Part One [of Net Needle], is effectively the collection's title-poem... This is Adamson at his most characteristic and memorable: the gritty realism with a lyrical edge; the "hands-on" knowledge of a physical craft; the opening-out into wider implications about people's emotional lives.' - Geoff Page, Sydney Morning Herald; '[Adamson's] body of work deserves to be on every high school and university syllabus, and in every bait and tackle shop, in the country... Net Needle once again shows Adamson to be a beneficiary of the more protean aspects of modernism, an emotionally warm and compassionate poet whose scarifying disclosures are never made simply to shuck the past.' - --Gregory Day, Weekend Australian

Adamson weaves together a book that captures the most enduring, most fragile landscape of all: living memory. --World Literature Today
