Nightmares Run Like Mercury

Author(s): Paul Collis


From the author of the David Unaipon award winning novel Dancing Home.Paul Collis' first collection of poetry is a book of difficult truths and profound connections. It charts a life lived on the streets, on country, in the deep time of tradition, of relationships to land and family. This book mourns those who have passed, and the current state of places and people held close in the heart and in the kinds of knowledge inseparable from self that might be called 'being'. It is also a poetry of hope in the hopeless, of beauty in small moments, and the overwhelming 'now' that is memory.
