Well, I know I’ve been talking about this for ages, but my book of poems How to be Hungry is finally available.
How to be Hungry mainly features poems I’ve written since 2006, based around the theme of desire in its various forms.
You can order it online by following this link: http://www.lulu.com/product/paperback/how-to-be-hungry/13213146
On that page you can also read the blurb, or download a preview, which includes the front and back cover and a short selection of poems from the book.
The cost of the book is $15, plus delivery. The delivery charge within Australia is currently $7.99 (check the site for delivery costs to other countries). Alternatively you can download the PDF file for $6. Note that Lulu is a US site, and these prices are in US dollars.
At this stage the book is not stocked in any bookshops. It may yet find its way into the odd specialist bookshop, but don’t expect to find it in your local Dymocks or Borders!
I expect I will have a launch in Melbourne at some stage (TBA).
Please feel free to spread the word to anyone you think might be interested.
I hope you enjoy the book. Putting it together has been … well … an odyssey!
