From the publisher

Acres of Light, Katherine Gallagher's 6th full collection and her first since her new and selected, is a rich and evocative exploration: a sensuous celebration veined with echoes of travel and displacement, with identity and belonging, as she reaches into her different worlds. Along the way, her relationship with Australia in particular, has changed. Austere and elegiac, occasionally tongue-in-cheek and playful, these poems encompass Gallagher's enthusiasms for the worlds of Australia and Europe, and where they have taken her. As poet Penelope Shuttle said when speaking of Gallagher's Carnival Edge: New & Selected Poems, 'Gallagher inhabits her poems with ease and confidence.'
