Old Growth, New Beginnings

Friday 17th March / posted by RTR

John Kinsella is an author and poet from WA whose work consistently features the Western Australian landscape.

He’s the author of 30 books and is the three-time winner of the WA Premier’s Book Award for Poetry. He’s a fellow at Camebridge’s Churchill college, the editor of international literary journal Salt, and self-describes as a vegan/anarchist/pacifist.

Recently he came out with a book of short stories called Old Growth, which drops us seamlessly into the worlds of men, women and children at pivotal moments in their lives.

In one story, a husband who has lost his wife plans to destroy the old-growth bush she loved and escape to the city, with alarming consequences.

In another, racism at a small town supermarket is resisted through friendship.
