Reviews

'A witty, endearingly slangy, yet unostentatiously philosophical Australian poet'. - Times Literary Supplement; `Prefacing one of his new poems, Wallace-Crabbe quotes D. H. Lawrence: "You just walk out of the world and into Australia." Here it is the other way round. You walk out of a Wallace-Crabbe poem and into the world.' - Alastair Niven
