Take two: With Love and Fury: The Selected Letters of Judith Wright, ed Patricia Clarke and Meredith McKinney

For a full review, see my Patreon

A charming publication and another of my rambling purchases from the Co-Op Bookshop, Sydney University (like Wright I worked in admin for a tertiary education institution). It set me back the princely sum of $3.59: a steal at a tenth of the original retail price. Because the poet was from New England I chose a bucolic 1979 painting by Michael Taylor (bought via Facebook Marketplace for about this book’s recommended retail price) to go with my prize – for this National Library of Australia book is more than a gift despite its modest cost.
