Saffron and Silk is Anne Benjamin’s beautifully written novel about life as a young Australian Indian bride during the time of the assassination of Prime Minister Indira Ghandi. Anne uses her personal experience to explore the larger issues of India’s culture and history, making Saffron and Silk a personal insider story of some of the treasures and dilemmas of a country that is increasingly significant to contemporary Australia.


A Cobbled Path is Erina Booker’s eighth collection of poems. Erina has focused her finely-tuned artist’s eye on everything from the mercurial nature of love, to the existential questions of loss, loneliness, and grief, and the many things in between.


Slow Growing Ivy

AA Slow Growing Ivy COVER Copy Copy-1Slow Growing Ivy is the second tanka collection by David Terelinck, published in 2014.

The collection contains individual tanka, tanka sequences, and prose journeys.

Perfect bound, full gloss paperbook of 112 pages. The collection is sensitively illustrated by Sylvia Amoedo.

The following is from the back-cover endorsement by US tanka poet, Tom Clausen:

“Moving us from the moon and the stars to the inner workings of the human condition, the indelible tanka of David Terelinck are inspired by a life carefully considered and beautifully conceived. With a poignant and deft use of the five line form Terelinck provides us with a blueprint to find our way across the threshold of emotionally complex and challenging feelings. Using language that is inimitable and wonderfully memorable Terelink’s tanka do what the best poetry should do; take us on a voyage of discovery and awareness of the ephemeral to a place that is lasting in our heart.”

~ Tom Clausen, author of A Work of Love and Growing Late
