OI is his first book of poems. He describes it thusly:
“OI is a book that's easy on the eye, with a simple illustrated layout, but it demands a lot of its readers. The poems are set out phonetically, to emphasise the voice ahead of the writing. It works an Australian accent without hamming it up. The illustrations are line drawings by Charles Lake, which work as
counterpoints to the text. Some are pictorial and interpretative; others are abstract and reflective.”
OI will be published in paperback format of 48pp extant. It will sell for a RRP of $15.00.
