Author(s): Robert Drewe
Renowned novelist and creative non-fiction writer Robert Drewe teams up with internationally acclaimed poet John Kinsella to explore a common geography in poetry and prose. Sand is quintessentially Australian. It is a property from which many of our stories, assumptions and geographical reckonings are drawn. For Drewe and Kinsella, it evokes the memories - both personal and cultural - that inspire the writing in this book. Digging into its shifting foundations, the authors use their own lives to explore the importance of sand in the Australian psyche.
