ABC Radio National aired an episode of Science Friction this week in which I was interviewed about my book Airplane Baby Banana Blanket and the chimpanzee Lucy on whom (I prefer whom to which when referring to Lucy) its poems are based.

Natasha Mitchell and I spoke about a range of issues regarding Lucy and the problematic experiment that constituted her cross-fostered childhood and difficult later 'rehabilitation'.

I also read a good selection of poems from ABBB. Check it out in the Radio section of my media page.

Join Me for ABBB's Launch!

My latest poetry collection Airplane Baby Banana Blanket will be launched on Wednesday the 28th of October at 7.30pm. As large physical gatherings are still a bit dicey, the launch will be held online


Where shrieks of bedlam

are the norm, calm

pricks the ears
