WILD SURMISE book cover   Other Worlds: Poems 1997-2001
Dorothy Porter

Cover design by Michael Goldberg

Dustjacket synopsis:
"Deep space. Jupiter. Medellin. Olympic Sydney. Europa. Northern Territory. Other worlds....

"Where The Monkey's Mask showed poetry could be 'sticky as sex', Other Worlds burns poetry in after-images on the retina, illuminating the strangeness, grit and beauty of life at the beginning of the twenty-first century. This is high velocity poetry questioning contemporary living with savage wit."
