Another Fine Morning in Paradise

Click To Buy - Michael Sharkey

Another Fine Morning In Paradise, Sharkey’s first collections since The Sweeping Plain, recounts the droll customs of suburban and rural Cockaigne, the existential states of earthly and other paradises, and re-imagines a poet’s fragmented Australia. Isolation, loss and heartbreak are never far from these projections of the good life, in poems that characteristically celebrate endurance with compassion, allusiveness and wit.

Elegance in plain clothes, that’s Michael Sharkey.
