Interferon Psalms

by Luke Davies

Winner of 2012 Prime Minister’s Literary Award for Poetry

The new book of poetry from award-winning poet and novelist, Luke Davies.

The ravaging effects of illness, the breakup of a relationship and the disturbing nature of relocation. These are the subjects under award-winning Luke Davies’ meditative eye. Luke Davies’ Totem was a grand love poem, a hymn to life; Interferon Psalms is a song of the brutality of time, a song of death, yet equally as beautiful.
