Product Description

“Even the titles thrum, so that the index reads like a suite of small poems. Kathryn Lomer’s is a house with many rooms, Wunderkammers all, filled with curious objects drawn from the worlds of art, science, nature, love, life, death… everything. Supple lines and sensitive rhythms make surprising conjunctions, often leading us from the smallest detail of a beloved’s body to an erotics of the cosmos. Lomer’s music shows us what it means to live a life of poetry.”
– Judges’ comments, 2021 Dorothy Hewett Award


Afterlife is an elegant, beautifully cadenced collection that addresses major themes with economy and grace…the main undertaking here is to explore connotations of ‘afterlife’, particularly as regards [to] loss triggered by death or, more often, lost love…Lomer continues the sensual immersion in the natural world found in her previous collections.” ANTHONY LYNCH, Australian Book Review  (paywalled)

“Kathryn Lomer’s AfterLife evok[es] loneliness after love in Tasmanian landscapes exact and imaged.” GLYN DAVIS, Australian Book Review (paywalled)
