Cut a Long Story Short

Peter Lach-Newinsky

Poetry ISBN: 9781922186652

Price: $25.00 inc.GST

In Cut a Long Story Short Lach-Newinsky creates a resonant and lucid rave, a memoir that subverts and extends the genre, while waging a campaign to show us the incalculable facts of war, eco-troubles, the downhill slide to death and the leavening joys of life. It’s a mash-up of realities in the 20th & 21st centuries that ropes in The Wasteland, Rilke and Whitman, language as bridge & barrier, MacGyver, Frisbees and A4 batteries. A salutary read.”—Carol Jenkins
